Sony seeding stable Android 11 to Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 units

This update comes a month earlier than what Sony had originally revealed in its Android 11 roadmap which is good to see.

The update changelog does not reveal the full list of changes. The security patch appears to be stuck on December though.
