Greetings gcc maintainers!

A FESCo issue[0] has been filed due to the dropping of 389-ds-base and
freeipa on 32 bit arches for Fedora 28. This was done without a change
request being filed, so FESCo is trying to decide how best to handle it.

It seems there are some concerns about whether the C tooling correctly
handles some cases for 32-bit arches that led to the decision by the IPA
maintainers to drop support for 32-bit. FESCo would like to ask for the
GCC maintainers' input on the issue.

Thanks in advance for your feedback!
GCC, binutils, etc all support 32-bit arches just fine.  THe current
thinking is there are serious concurrency concerns in the freeipa code
which are leading to the failures they were seeing on 32 bit platforms
(i686 in particular).
To be clear there are concerns in 389-ds code that lead to data
corruptions on i686. They aren't seen on other 32-bit platforms Fedora
supports according to 389-ds developers.

FreeIPA has no choice as 389-ds-base was moved to exclude i686
architecture according to the process defined in Fedora.
