The question was: How do you provide 2.4.x for architecture
blah and 2.4.y for architecture foo, which are two versions of the
same "upstream branch".

Afaict you were proposing to have one package for each upstream
/branch/. You cannot have linux-2.4_2.4.x.orig.tar.gz and
linux-2.4_2.4.y.orig.tar.gz at the same time in the Debian archive,
once you upload 2.4.y to sid, 2.4.x with x<<y is not available in sid
