using pbzip2 or pigz when building packages

merge 513742 517249


I'm currently regularly building kernels on a 24core machine which is really 
nice as it's fast but then it's not as fast as it could be as most of the time 
is spent tar'ing and zip'ing the resulting debian packages.

So I would like to use pbzip2 or pigz to make use of all the cores for this 
too. But this doesnt seem to be straightforward. #517249 would be one way to 
achieve this, another would be make dpkg-source use it directly. I'd prefer 
the latter.

Any other approaches I'm missing?
