Some mecanism must be set to prevent building on armel, because actual
buildd armel servers are armv7 and as such are supported by nodejs >= 4.

Otherwise it is right that only removing nodejs and reverse deps from
testing would be enough.
I am not sure what is going to happen which Arch: all packages
