Thanks for the headsup, it took a little to dig up the current
situation:

~few 1000s still relevant spread between 4G and 8G (confirmed that both
are present, relevant and in use).

I wish we could sunset, but unfortunately, I am told(and agree)
that we should'nt just leave products (and these are long term
products stuck in critical parts in our world) hanging in the air, and
migrations to newer kernel do still take place periodically (the best
I can talk in public forum at least).
