Just the most important things from top of my head:

pam_tally, pam_tally2 is deprecated in favor of pam_faillock
pam_cracklib, pam_pwquality is deprecated in favor of pam_pwquality
pam_console is deprecated without replacement (its functionality is
mostly handled by systemd in slightly different way)
pam_unix remember option is deprecated in favor of pam_pwhistory
