What's wrong about it William? I'm still running some systems that date back to
the 2.4.x kernel. They run fine. If someone wants to run a 6.3 version with
the 6.3 version of the packages and patches, it will build and run just fine.
It will be missing some bug fixes, but it may be OK for some scenarios.
