Android devices that no longer support GPU Render Mode?

Does anyone know if there is a list of devices that no longer support GPU render mode (especially ones that previously did support GPU render mode)?

Since we have to update our older AIR 18 apps to AIR 21+ because of the Google Play OpenSSL issue, we've been testing our updates and noticed that our apps which use GPU render mode were suddenly playing terrible on some of our test devices.  It seems they are instead running in CPU mode on some devices.  I posted about this on the other Adobe AIR forum yesterday:

GPU Render Mode not working on Nexus 7 with AIR 21+

The Adobe docs say that the Release Notes will list devices that have GPU rendering disabled, but the Release Notes don't seem to have anything about this here.

Is there a list available for devices where Adobe has dropped GPU render mode support in newer versions of AIR?  This will definitely be important moving forward, since I'm sure users are going to start requesting refunds for apps that suddenly play terrible on their devices after the updates, and we'd like to keep track of which devices are affected so we know whether there is a valid claim for a refund or not.
