Works for me (with warnings) with something like:
(it needs standard configuration for schroot.conf)
$ fakeroot debootstrap --foreign --arch=armel sid $ROOTDIR
$ cp /usr/bin/qemu-arm-static $ROOTDIR/usr/bin
$ sudo sh -c "echo 0 > /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr"
$ fakeroot schroot -c sid_armel

Maybe, in the future, it can be integrated into schroot.
