The security team has requested to trim down the amount of kernel packages
and kernel patches for sarge, as they won't be able to handle the workload
of fixing security bugs for three kernel branches otherwise.

Right now, some mk68 subarchs and sparc32 still require 2.2 kernels and
might still be supported for sarge, but at least p3 should be dropped.
I'm also pretty sure that the amount of RAID setups with antique hardware
like this is pretty close to 0.
