Help needed: F23 32-bit kernel issue

There is a report of an issue with the boot.iso and DVD isos not
booting on 32-bit machines/VMs because of a kernel issue [1].  As far
as is known, the issue doesn't happen on 64-bit.  It may happen on
32-bit ARM but that is not confirmed as the ARM issue manifests
differently.  The bug needs help.

First, it would be good to isolate it to the first kernel that doesn't
work.  That narrows down the range of commits to look at for the bug.

Secondly, it would be excellent if someone could commit to spinning
test ISOs when requested.  Turn around time on bugs like this are
quite lengthy given that they often require building a new kernel
package, and then spinning a custom ISO with that package included.
Ideally the ISO content would not change from spin to spin other than
the kernel, to eliminate variables.

If you would like to help with this, please CC yourself on the bug.
Please avoid chiming in on the bug with "me too" style comments
though, as that makes the bug harder to follow.
