Backport is not necessary on Tempest side, because Tempest is
branchless and we are using the same Tempest for stable branches.
If using the package of Tempest on tempest-plugin gate, the old
data_utils still exists with putting the Tempest version limitation
after the removal.
If using the latest Tempest on tempest-plugin gate, we need to
backport the corresponding patches to tempest-plugin after the
The above ways are different on projects.
