There is still a lot of AIX 6.1 out there, and iirc, there may be
"extended" support available.

However, at this point in time the bots run (most of the time) on AIX
7.2, -- occasionally, on AIX 7.1. And when I (personally) test - it is
usually on AIX 6.1 (e.g., to have _uuid support).

In any case, I still package using AIX 6.1 (again, _uuid mod support)
and rely on AIX binary compatibility for installations on AIX 7.1 and
AIX 7.2.

Should you be thinking/considering moving AIX to the "supported" column
- I would "gladly" embrace AIX 7.1 as a requirement.
