The DPDK project is only committed to supporting upstream kernel
versions that are still in support. The 3.16 kernel has reached
End Of Life (in June 2020). The next LTS kernel is 4.4 and is
supported until February 2020.

This does not change the existing policy that distribution kernels
that are older are still supported.
