Sweet, thanks. I got your IRC message (though I was afk when you sent it),
and I tested the archlinux-2017.06.12-i686.iso image, which also segfaults
when starting up. Let me know if testing this on actual physical hardware
would be helpful for your debugging process.

Ah, I had thought archlinux-keyring would have been enough. It works after
installing the archlinux32-keyring, but it seems to need to be installed
manually via pacman -U. Pacman thinks that the package is corrupt unless
the package is installed, bit of a catch-22.

Here's a video documenting the my install process (using the
archlinux-2017.05.01-i686.iso image): https://youtu.be/LEPKi9vGKK8
