Default H1 Extension question after 140 approved and revoked

That revoked I-140 is, however, good for retaining the priority date (which your employer B should request on their I-140) and this "PD porting" is allowed NOW under the current law only.
Thanks DMX17
While I was waiting for your answer, I also asked same question to Murthy law firm. I know that the if it comes to policy I shouldn't listen to Lawyers but as this is specific question I asked them and here is what I got response. I am bit confused.

I have a specific question, if someone could answer will be great help.
I have 140 approved almost 4 years ago with employer A. Then I moved to employer B and employer A revoked 140. My current employer is in process of PERM.

1) My question is with proposed memo, will I able to get extension even my 140 is not approved with current employer and even previous 140 is revoked?
2) How would I know if my employer A revoked 140 or not?

Response below-
1. The proposed changes suggest an individual can obtain H1B extensions even when an I-140 is withdrawn by an employer if that I-140 has been approved for at least 180 days prior to withdrawal.
2. You can check the online status at Homepage | USCIS. However please be aware USCIS does not always update the case status punctually or accurately 100% of the time.
