I made the point here:

I sent a "backup commit" for that here:
But I would like a few days to see if there's some trivial way of not
needing that on arm32. If it turns out to be easy, then I'd prefer the
direct fix akin to the arm64 one. If it turns out to be not easy, then
I'll merge the backup commit. I'll keep you posted (and I assume anyway
you'll see the arm32 attempts progress or fail here, also).
