- A "warning" will be put in to make build on the 20.05 (this) release.

- A build abort will be put in to make build on the 20.08 release, which can be
bypassed with an environment variable.

- The current owner of the deprecation process is Bruce.

2) rte_atomic deprecation

- GCC 4.8.5 & Clang 3.4.2 compilers are part of CentOS7 & RHEL7 and these
distros will keep supported, which means those old compilers will be supported.
