No, don't do that. It's obviously "arch: all" package if azure cannot
run i386... really? I cannot find such restriction and doubt why it'd
be limited to 64bit since amd64 host can run i386 VMs, you know.
And rpm package also specifies "WALinuxAgent-1.0-1.noarch.rpm"- noarch
= arch: all . They misunderstood?
There is a guy who runs even FreeBSD on WindowsAzure :)
Debian also has kfreebsd-amd64 arch, then will put 2 _same binaries_ on
Debian archive, we should avoid it.

Why you ignore test results? Probably you don't put false alert every
time piuparts runs on piuparts.debian.org...

Okay, I should investigate and test waagent script more, thanks.
