Bug#585767: Dependencies on linux-gnu or not+linux-gnu do not match armel or powerpcspe correctly

This make sense.
So I'm going to mass open bugs against every package which uses
linux-gnu and tell them to use linux-any which becomes policy once
#530687. Is this intended? There is actually no reason to use linux-gnu
instead of linux-any, is there?
Does the new policy make type-handling obselete since dpkg provides it?
 Assuming that "linux-any is not allowed by policy" is not a reason.
