SRU Justification

Impact: i386 will not be a supported architecture in 19.10, so we should
drop it from our packaging. However we will still need to support i386
in hwe kernels.

Fix: Stop building i386 packages, but keep the configs and other bits
for supporting i386 in place.

Test Case: Verify that i386 kernels are no longer produced, but that
configs can still be updated.

Regression Potential: The changes are straightforward, and any
regressions are likely to be build-time issues, so regressions impacting
users are unlikely.
