There are no instructions in #457345 as far as I can see. To create a 
new format source package do the following:
$ mkdir -p debian/source
$ echo "3.0 (quilt)" >debian/source/format
$ dpkg-buildpackage -S

Then remove the source directory and try to extract the new source package
and do a normal rebuild. If it works, the bug is fixed.

Everything about those new formats is documented in dpkg-source's manual
