+1 from me, it's a dead-end and i've been (not secretly) hoping for this.

All of these should follow the deprecation guidelines i think?
Busybox in particular should keep at least a previous version around,
because there have been cases of .0 releases being quite broken.
Maybe patches show up soon but they don't follow a release schedule like
we do and there could be problems with that.
Also punching a hole in gcc version continuity even though logical
sounds dirty (and really they aren't stopping any features other than
missing atomics in old versions).
