I messed up, I didn't notice that the actual kernel was disabled in

build failed, albeit at a different step:

Why do we still need the PAE config?
Anyway, sorry to have wasted your time.
If anyone else has any ideas, please chime in.

The PAE config is still there because these kernels get rebased back to F27 still, and PAE is still built there. That said, if the config were gone, the segfault would just happen elsewhere.
