Related: it might be a good idea to remove all older versions (right now we keep 4.x, 5, 6 and 7) and keep just the latest one (8). I'll amend the commit if @vinymeuh and @rasendubi agree.

@prusnak I am against this as gcc-arm-embedded versions are not really backward compatible and that manifests in much more ways in embedded projects. (i.e., many embedded projects do not compile or even crash with newer versions of gcc)

FWIW, that was previously discussed at #52146

@rasendubi I am fine with keeping all old versions and that's how I did this patch in the first place.

Let's review this as it is then.

@prusnak sure. I didn't block the PR—just hadn't time to wait for the build to finish. 🙂
