That's a good question Stefan. The ultimate goal is to have it
backported to focal/5.4, this is just to prevent focal-ga -> focal-hwe
regressions. Is it correct that the last cycle that will have both 5.4
and 5.8 would be 2021.07.12? In which case, we're unlikely to have a
5.4 version ready in that time frame anyway, so I'd agree we should
just skip 5.8.
