No, it is more that the tinderbox for 8 wasn't actually checking these
kernels before (they have been broken since 8.1 and 8.2 were released) and 
they are on less-used platforms.  I do agree it needs to be cleaned up one way 
or another.  Given the reticence to commit changes to release branches, it is 
probably simpler to mask this via the tinderbox instead.
