I'm sure it's just some packaging or deployment issue.  But
https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-runner/merge_requests/725 has been
open for more than one year; the last two messages are:

* 1 month ago: "I hope we will be able to merge it soon"

* 3 weeks ago: "Today I tried use gitlab-runner on my arm64 box, however
it kept mysteriously failing"

So the question is simply who does the work.
