The easiest solution for backports is to build and name your packages
like normal but be sure to not build your package on affected
architectures. If you are only backporting to Ubuntu, be sure your
package does not build on armhf. That can either be set in the source
package or in the PPA settings.

If you are also doing backports for Debian, there are a few other
affected architectures.
