Built a test package with the upstream patch here:

Then tested autopkgtest on bionic system, with the patched dpkg.  Fails
as expected with the current trusty dpkg:

$ autopkgtest -U dpkg_1.17.5ubuntu5.8.dsc -- lxd ubuntu-daily:trusty
autopkgtest [15:20:15]: ERROR: "dpkg --unpack 
/tmp/autopkgtest.wuLHN3/autopkgtest-satdep.deb" failed with stderr "dpkg-deb: 
error: archive '/tmp/autopkgtest.wuLHN3/autopkgtest-satdep.deb' has premature 
member 'control.tar.xz' before 'control.tar.gz', giving up

Build/autopkgtest successful with the patched trusty dpkg from PPA:

$ autopkgtest --setup-commands='sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ddstreet/lp1730627'
