Using Docker image sounds like a great idea.

Same for me.
As you have noticed, ILP32 was removed from Linaro's tracking kernel recently.
The thing is that we (builds&baselines team in Linaro) have been requested
to have a CI loop for ILP32. So I'll continue running it, but will use a
separate git branch for ILP32. The linux-linaro branch will not have ILP32
any more (or at least until ILP32 ABI is agreed on).
