while the change looks ok to me, I'd very much prefer if it was
actually tested before committing it (the same is true for
bug#928863).  Could you perhaps create an arm64 chroot and do a
test build in it (qemu-user-static+binfmt-support allows running
arm64 code in a chroot on an amd64 host transparently)?

$ sudo apt install mmdebstrap qemu-user-static binfmt-support
$ sudo mmdebstrap --architectures=arm64 sid /tmp/arm64-chroot "deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ sid main"
$ sudo chroot /tmp/arm64-chroot
# apt-get update

In this environment you should be able to build flash-kernel/d-i
for testing on real arm64 hardware.
