Bug#172332: dpkg-dev: dpkg-architecture should have a field for the kernel architecture

Package: dpkg-dev
Version: 1.10.9
Severity: normal

On the HPPA architecture all the data that dpkg-architecture returns refers to
"hppa" and makes no reference to "parisc" (as used in the kernel source).

This makes it very inconveniant when searching for a reference to the
architecture in a kernel patch (I currently use "sed -e s/hppa/parisc/").
