hurd-i386 issues update (Was: Re: Bits from the Release Team - Freeze, removals and archs)

Dear wanna-build, DSA and Installer teams,

we are not sure about who complain{,ed} about what. Could you please
pick hurd-i386 issues you concern about below and integrate missing
ones if any, just to know what would still need to be improved, as
pointed out by Release team, "to make sure an appropriate list of
known issues is agreed upon by all involved, kept and updated and
eventually resolved, this cannot be driven by the release team." [0 -
FYI a full list of known issues is at [TODO].

Thanks for your time,

Trying to clarify, I guess serial hack is what I proposed on
jenkins.d.n few months ago [J1, J2] and reverted few weeks ago, once
Justus' work reached archive.

Unfortunately installation on jenkins.d.n machine is really slow and
hurd suffers that, it never managed to finish installation so far. BTW
never heard anyone complaining about installer getting stuck on faster
