Hi Lintian maintainers,

Please consider applying below mentioned patch which introduces a check
to warn about font packages which are not marked as Multi-Arch
foreign. A discussion about this happened in pkg-fonts team [1]

Additionally I've written a test for the newly introduced tag I've run
the tests for field checks and everything passes
