Arm64 multipass issue solution/workaround

I’m building a snap for amd64, arm64, and armhf. It’s successful on amd64, but multipass crashes when building on arm64 because of a known multipass issue.

I’m able to get around this issue by running snapcraft snap --use-lxd, but I wonder if I’m going to see any side-effects from using that method, which was replaced by multipass.

Should I expect any side effects? Is there a better way to deal with this? I may be able to use remote-build in the future, but that’s not an option right now.

You should be just fine with --use-lxd.
