Raise the severity to what level?  Supporting 64-bit kernels for i386 is not
a release-critical issue.  They would be nice to have, but I'm not going to
try to force the kernel team to support them as there may be reasons they
don't wish to.

Can someone from the kernel team comment on whether there are problems with
this particular patch that have not yet been noted in the bug report?  If
there aren't any known objections, I could review the patch myself and look
at committing it.
