Increase block gas limit on Kovan

Hello, validators,
Recently, ethereum mainnet miners started accepting 10mm gas limit. I think kovan testnet should also set 10mm gas limit.

If you agree, please go to your node, and change in node.toml file
gas_floor_target = "10000000"

Or maybe wait for POA team to release new update on github’s playbook.

I think it will be easier to just ssh into the node and set the settings.
Don’t forget to
sudo systemctl stop poa-parity

POA has also set gas limit to 10M.
Dear @kovan-validators, please consider updating as well.
