If I don't upload them at the same time I'm likely to forget to upload

linux-latest has a build-dependency on a linux-headers package, which
it doesn't really *need*, to prevent it from actually being built until
after linux is built on the same architecture.  However, since we added
signed packages, that's not enough to stop it building too early.

Maybe it should now build-depend on signed kernel images for
architectures that have them, but I'm not sure that's a reasonable
thing to do.
