Raising minimum CPU requirement for s390 kernel/port

Hi folks

I would like to raise the minimum CPU requirement for the s390 port to
z900. At the same time the 31-bit kernel (-s390) will be retired because
it lacks upstream maintenance.

This means that Debian will get unusable on the old 31-bit-only CPUs (G5
and G6), as used for example in the Multiprise 3000. The Hercules[1]
emulator supports z/Architecture mode, so it will continue to work.
However FLEX-ES, a commercial emulator, will not be able to run Debian
