An option to override the discard would also be useful for Debian 
Installer's kernel udebs.

This is not a real package build, but rather a repackaging of a regular 
linux-image package. The D-I team uses a special script for that which 
allows this to be done for all architectures on any architecture, and has 
some other advantages as well.

In this case a rebuild of the package on the buildds would offer zero 
added value and could in certain situations limit the flexibility of the 
D-I team to do uploads of kernel udebs.
