A new binary flavour from the same linux source package would be
preferable here, as it greatly reduces the overhead of the extra
upload, extra archive administration (NEWing), and extra SRU

I know that the linaro armel kernels were just split from a common
source package, which seems like a step backwards. This was a
trade-off to be able to build several of them in parallel. But
i386/amd64 architectures/builders are "fast enough" and also
multi-core, so I'd love to see this workaround being limited to arm
