According to:

kernel-3.10.0-514.2.2.el7.i686 was built successfully. Do you find patches that are needed other than those in that kernel? If so, can you share more details?

It was built successfully because -Werror was disabled for the i386 build, hiding all the errors and producing an unusable kernel. I assume this was done in order to be able to build other packages depending on the kernel packages.

But in order to release 7.3.1611 for i386 with a functional iptables the kernel needs to be updated just like was done for 7.2 in
