I think capping at 3.10 is reasonable.  Internally, we have been
supporting 3.8+, but we got permission to support only 3.12 and above.

Last time we nuked support for older kernels [1], we were supporting
only 15 kernel versions (3.0 through 3.14).  Now we are at 30 (3.0
through 4.10 -- sort of).  If we make the cut at 3.10 we are at 20,
which is still a lot more conservative than our last "nuke".
