I think we can setup a jessie-kfreebsd suite. I guess it should

 - just accept uploads (provided versions are greater-equal testing)
 - contain just 3 archs: all, kfreebsd-{i386,amd64}
 - have no extra policy queues, and
 - share overrides with jessie.

Uploads should probably include a specific suffix to avoid version
clashes with the offical release (for source and arch:all packages).

Well, kfreebsd is still in testing for now ;)

Copying everything from testing should not be too complicated if we only
need to do so once.
