There already is a 64-bit kernel available (just install the -s390x kernel 
image package) in past and current Debian releases.

The kernel team has just dropped support for 31-bit systems in unstable 
[1], so Debian Installer will start using and installing a 64-bit kernel 
by default for the next stable release (Squeeze).
Whether this will also result in changing the userland to 64-bit I don't
