Actually, yes I do (I had not tested i386 for 5.3~ within the last ~2
weeks, only amd64). Very similar kernel config, same compiler versions
but built in a slightly different environment (built directly on the bare
iron, in a amd64 multilib userspace, rather than a pure-i386 chroot on an
amd64 kernel).

I've attached the affected kernel config for v5.3~/ i386.
