Can we work around it by not allowing both arches of the kernel to be 
built on the same buildhost ? IIRC that's when this is happening...

As for the current kernel in updates testing it's no big problem,
as it's not the final one for QA. I will push a new set this weekend,
and make sure all rpms gets on the mirror.
