Efi, atleast current ipxe version, only supports the same bitness as the
starting ipxe.efi.
Dont know if there has been any attempts to change this. As I understand
its not as trivial as one might think.
On the other hand why the need for 32bit kernel?

Sorry for any misstakes - blaming them on  The phone.
