The I-pipe and Cobalt ports to x86_32 received neither careful
maintenance nor testing for ages. In addition, Dovetail does not support
the 32bit legacy mode, and there is no plan to do so. Therefore I
recommend to stop supporting the x86_32 architecture starting from
Xenomai 3.2, which echoes what Jan has been saying for quite a while
about this issue too.

If you do care about running Xenomai on this architecture and are
willing to maintain such a port in the long run, this is definitely the
right time to make your case, asap.
