Default kbuild, deb-pkg: fix Architecture field when cross compiling

I had a problem earlier with Kbuild ignoring ARCH if CROSS_COMPILE
wasn't set, but can't reproduce with the current kernel, but I also
started out with upgrading it from .26, since squeezes .32 doesn't work
on Soekris net4501. So this is no longer an issue.

The other reason for make it dependent on CROSS_COMPILE at least to
begin with is that the ARCH -> debarch translation table doesn't have to
be as complete since it doesn't break anything in the currently working
non-cross compile senario. If this doesn't matter then I will send a new
patch, that doesn't depend on CROSS_COMPILE being set.

I have CC'ed the debian-kernel list, for people not on LKML:
