Great, that sounds like it could be a real improvement. I’m thinking again of ER-Xs, which are weak quad-cores that can’t run cake at more than around 100Mbps aggregate bandwidth, and do better at significantly less.

Speaking of those, Ubiquiti hasn’t responded yet but at least the new kernel request has more Kudos than a number of other requests that have already been accepted, for what that’s worth, and in case anyone hasn’t added their vote (https://community.ubnt.com/t5/EdgeMAX-Feature-Requests/Upgrade-Linux-kernel-to-at-least-4-4/idi-p/2140663).
