https://golang.org/doc/install states that the minimum kernel version for all linux platform is 2.6.23. This is not correct. The minimum for linux/arm is 2.6.27 (possibly 28), however this contradicts information from the wiki, https://github.com/golang/go/wiki/Linux

See #3897

The minimum requirements page seems to offer an explanation:

Linux/ARMv5 requires much newer kernels, at least v3.1 (for __kuser_cmpxchg64).

https://github.com/golang/go/wiki/MinimumRequirements

Not claiming this is correct, just noting this here so if we uniform the docs one way or the other we can update every place at once.
