    Use binfmt-support --fix-binary option (#868030) · b1fc77d6
    Dan Nicholson authored
    binfmt-support 2.1.7 added the --fix-binary boolean option that maps to
    the kernel's F binfmt flag[1]. This flag instructs the kernel to open
    the binfmt handler immediately when registered. This is very helpful in
    the case of qemu-user-static where emulation of another architecture can
    be handled with no updates to a chroot or container running foreign
    architecture binaries.
    
    However, in the case of qemu-user and qemu-update-binfmt, this is less
    likely to be helpful since dynamic linking would still require the many
    libraries in the alternate root. In that case, continue to run
    update-binfmts without --fix-binary.
