This warning has been posted weeks ago already and nothing happened
about it. There was not even a message from the "maintainers" about the
status ([1]). Since 3.9 is EOL now, we will move 3.10 whether those
modules are fixed or not and as a result, drop the aforementioned packages.

[1] By "maintainers" I mean TUs who cannot even afford to react to an
email that affects their package. Maybe we should start insulting people
like Linus does.
