Very late follow up to this...

We had attempted to perform this EOL of the driverfixes branches, but
since those series are closed, plus more recent changes to enforce other
expected formats for tagging, we were not able to use our automation
like we normally do for that step.

I have now manually pushed mitaka-driverfixes-eol and
newton-driverfixes-eol tags.

Our next step is to delete those branches so no further patches can be
proposed. We will need to enlist the infra/OpenDev teams help for that step.
