This is what I'd do:
Build libqmi from git master but don't make install, just make dist
Rename the generated tarball with the .orig. suffix thing required by
the debian packaging.
Extract the tarball, get into the extracted directory
Get the debian directory from the PPA packaging and copy it into the
extracted directory before
Bump version in debian/changelog
There's probably a cleaner way to do, though, I'm no debian developer :)
