Re: qemu-friendly flavour of the ARM kernel

It's a problem of build resources.  I won't enable the Qemu kernel
image for etch because the ARM kernels already takes about 2 days to
build.  I'll re-evaluate the flavours we're building on ARM after
etch.  Since the RiscPC kernel will be dropped, it might be possible
to add Qemu.
