Bug#908519: linux: asciidoctor dependency blocks ia64 build

Source: linux
Severity: normal
User: debian-ia64@lists.debian.org
Usertags: ia64

Dear Maintainer,

Due to some ruby issues, asciidoctor is currently blocking the linux
package from building on ia64.  Since asciidoctor is only used to build
the linux-perf documentation, does it make more sense to:
1) move asciidoctor into the Build-Depends-Indep: section in the control
file, or
2) flag asciidoctor as [!ia64]?

I think #1 is the correct answer, but it's entirely possible my
understanding of build dependencies is incomplete.
