Re: Building qemu bootloaders for multiple architectures

Similar story for s390x virtio qemu bootloader support code. Currently

So far we have infrastructure to declare a particular source package
to be build on particular arch, but then one needs to split that arch
bootloader code into separate package... It would be nice to declare
Arch:all packages that are Build-Arch: s390x. That way e.g. there are
multiple arch:all builds despatched to build most arch:all packages on
arch:all builder, this arch:all package on s390x, and all the arch:any
packages everywhere else.
If we have an s390x cross compiler in the archive (and we do, at least
for i386 and amd64), wouldn't that be preferable? (Theoretically
buildable on a wider set of platforms/machines.) Of course there's an
argument where it's harder to test this, but maybe that's not even a
real problem in the cases we are talking about.
