This should work but I haven't tried it before.

Hmm, it looks like this patch is needed:

Subject: deb-pkg: Fix cross-building linux-headers package

builddeb generates a control file that says the linux-headers package
can only be built for the build system primary architecture.  This
breaks cross-building configurations.  We should use $debarch for this

Since $debarch is not yet set when generating the control file, set
Architecture: any and use control file variables to fill in the
