linux-kernel-di builds only kernels for the host architecture. Unless
you're running the build_all script.

It's true that if one architecture needs a change, such as a new kernel
or new module, this means the new version will have to be rebuilt on all
other architectures. There is no autobuilder hit though, because I use
cross-building (no compiling is involved) to build packages for all
architectures before releasing any new version.
