flash-kernel is usually updated per machine; doing the packaging changes to
enable a mips/mipsel build is relatively trivial (grep for armel / armhf and
list mips / mipsel there), but the new machines must be enabled correctly.
Ideally not only in flash-kernel but also in debian-installer to generate
suitable installation media.

There might also be some kernel packaging changes to do.
