No, it does not help me to have kernel 4.9 is master for maintaining 18.06.

The orion part in usb.mk is also used by mvebu:

uboot-kirkwood probably also uses some orion parts in the kirkwood target.

I think kmod-crypto-iv is empty now.

There are also some checks in include/netfilter.mk which can be removed now.

This file can also be removed:
