Upstream sources are unified among the arches, and support cross
compiling. I
do not believe debian kernel package supports cross compiling.

To cross-compile, install the cross toolchain, and then configure with
ARCH=arm make nconfig

and set

depending on which toolchain you installed (i believe they are equal
when it comes to compiling the kernel, but I am not sure, I have always
compiled with the "gnueabi" one.
