Minor tweaks from the Debian side for 4.12:

 * I've dropped the libunwind option from the build for now on amd64,
   as it caused issues with the strace udeb that we provide for use in
   debian-installer development (#826223).

 * The strace -S test fails when building/running using a 32-bit
   userspace and a 64-bit kernel - the output includes both 64-bit and
   32-bit tracing which confuses the test. I have a hacky fix.

 * I've tweaked the package build to always run make check with
   VERBOSE=1 to make failures more useful in the build log.
