I dont believe they do either, they are disabling/enableing stuff in the
kernel's to be different from the x86_64 upsteam as well.

the real issue here is that if i386 ships with a different feature and
capabilities spec : will it matter ? The answer might lay in exactly
what is enabled / disabled - but since noone has come back so far with a
'this does not work for me', the assumption we might (should?) run with
is that its marked as an AltArch, and delivers its own feature set
regardless of what is in RHEL-7.
