Bug#172332: dpkg-dev: dpkg-architecture should have a field for the kernel architecture
> 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/").
Do you mean only for Linux, or for all kernels?

gives and hoards not, and is free from care, passing ever on to some new work."
