The model can be adapted. I am not pushing a patch to force our
solution, but to give back the code that has been done and tested.
It is up to the 2 teams to decide what to do with it.
Clearly applying it to 11 arch is technically possible, it of course
require more coordinations between people, and that is something
nobody can give you with a patch ;)

Nope.. the list of binaries that are generated per each arch is
still relatively small.
The control files grows in 2 directions:
- - the first one is static due to merging the different kernel-image-*
~ into one source, but you still generate the arch specific packages

- - the second one is slightly more dynamic and it involves the addition
~ of the udebs to the control file at build time, but they are still
So at the end you get nothing more than what you had before, just from the
If you look at our pool for linux-source, you will see that the
binaries are nothing
more than what was before in the 3 splitted once.
PS if any of the team as a proference for the followup, we can perhaps
