Well i guess someone should update

I have no problem with the upstream kernel doing that via technical
changes to the codebase, whether intentionally or as an unintentional
side-effect for other goals. I also have no problem with the fedora
kernel developers deciding to do that in an effort to reduce the their
support burden if that is what they deemed necessary.  Luckily for you
I have no decision making power over either group.
