There are patches applied to coreutils to Ubuntu, thus it will need a merge.
Separate architectures are not updated separately. Packages must match
across architectures, and not regress in the support. Ubuntu supports
7 architectures, and coreutils must be build on them all.
The issue might be related to the kernel headers shipped vs expected,
and the problem may or may not reproduce on Ubuntu, as our kernels are
different. It doesn't seem like a hard thing to fix on arm64.
