Both are fine I would say. But I would not file bugs until a debhelper
newer than 9.20160709 is in jessie-backports.

A lintian check helps people to not introduce the mistake in new packages
as well whereas a bug report only helps already existing packages (but
will greatly help the conversion while lintian will not have that much
of an impact).
