[Bionic/Cosmic/Disco/Unstable][SRU][PATCH 0/1] openvswitch: kernel oops destroying interfaces on i386 (LP #1736390)

The commit referenced in the patch introduced a regression on i386. Simply
adding/deleting an OVS bridge in a loop eventually triggers a crash.
Upstream is looking at the problem (I think) but nothing's been found yet.
In the meantime, disable that logic on i386 to get rid of the crash. Per
upstream, this only results in higher CPU usage and potential buffering
