Comment 3 for bug 1712873

PLATFORMID is set in debian/rules:

debian/rules:569:PLATFORMID := $(shell grep PLATFORMID debian/vars.$(DEB_HOST_ARCH) | cut -d"=" -f2)

and unsurprisingly:

./debian/vars.i386:1:PLATFORMID=linux_x86
./debian/vars.s390x:1:PLATFORMID=linux_s390x
./debian/vars.amd64:1:PLATFORMID=linux_x86_64

I'm wondering whether DEB_HOST_ARCH could be always (incorrectly) expanded to amd64 in the context of the autopkgtest runner?
