Our most recent FESCo meeting involved discussing the proposal to drop i686
builds of jdk8,11,17 from Fedora 37 onward. The topic quickly changed to the
larger question of "what do people use i686 packages for?"
As it turns out, I only use i686 packages to build kernel-tools. I am
not sure why we didn't turn off kernel-tools for i686 when we turned
off the kernel. I suppose someone could have been linking to libbpf or
libtraceevent, though those have been separate packages for a while
now. I actually had to turn off dynamic linking to libtraceevent
because i686 would no longer build against it.
