We will be changing our images this cycle to Xenial from Trusty. I do 
not believe we have any intention of installing backported wily kernels 
in our trusty images, as what we want to test on them is Trusty.

However, the Xenial transition should be happening soon enough - so 
things that need a newer kernel this release can happily just require 
Xenial images for testing.

I think the question of why/how kolla grew a dependency on a newer 
kernel than what trusty has is worth checking. As of right now, trusty 
kernels are the newest thing supported in the gate.
