"3DNow! is finally going away on the Linux platform forever ... [if you] have any old programs that require AMD's home-brewed instruction sets, Linux 5.16 is your last stop on the upgrade train."
This is misleading; presumably userspace applications are still able to use 3DNow! instructions even though the kernel no longer uses these instructions.
