This changed in 6.6.8-1 where you made the linux-libc-dev package 
binary-all. The problem you mention no longer exists in this form,
but not having loong64 headers in the now binary-all package made
many packages FTBFS on loong64.

Please add support for linux-libc-dev-only architectures in 

With a binary-all linux-libc-dev it does still work to have a different 
src:linux in unreleased, but linux-libc-dev does now break every time 
src:linux gets updated since a binary-all package 6.6.10-1 has a higher 
version than linux-libc-dev_6.6.9+loong64 in unreleased.

In practice this means that linux-libc-dev must ship headers at the 
latest when an architecture gets added in ports, far earlier than
building kernel images (which as you said might require other changes
on the ftp-master side).
