It's basically the maintainer's tradeoff between the urgency of updating
testing and the desire to make sure the package is thoroughly tested in
unstable.  I usually use urgency=medium for serious bugs that don't risk
compromise or data loss, or for major bugs with risky fixes that need to
be tested in unstable for a while.

Since this is a minimal change that fixes an arguably RC bug and adds
support for a major platform, urgency of high or medium is probably
appropriate here, but I'm not sure that it matters a great deal.
