Ah I see what you mean; this might be something we need to raise to the
initramfs-tools / kernel teams; I see the kernel packaging guide has
provisions which let me think that they want to support "dpkg -i
linux-image-foo.deb" from a chroot or a mounted external storage / fs
without triggering "grub-install" or so, but there doesn't seem to be
room to do this across architectures. I'm pretty sure qemu-arm works

I'd file this against your .deb generation tool
