pdftex will in texlive 2021 change  in two places

1. links where \pdfstartlink is in a different boxing level as
\pdfendlink are no longer a fatal error but gives only a warning:

    attr {/Border[0 0 1]}
        } Linktext}


pdfTeX warning: \pdfendlink ended up in different nesting level than

2. There are two new primitives \pdfrunninglinkoff &
\pdfrunninglinkon which allow to interrupt a running link for
example in the header or footer. 

Would it be possible to get this changes into luatex too?
