I'm fine with that. As soon as I drop kernels I also drop my support for 
extra modules.
This means at some point people using those might not be able to update 
their systems anymore.

Current issue are posts with linux39 installed on some systems. I'll add 
a warning for now that we
might drop those kernels as I already did with linux38.
