One Line Summary

Discussion the challenges and plumbing required to support AVX in multiple Linux packages and distributions


A few weeks ago a basic patch to set dl_platform and dl_hwcap from CPU features in dynamic linker was merged in glibc master for 2.26 release. This gives the capability to set optimized libraries at runtime. This BoF is for discuss the performance opportunities and how to adapt the Linux distributions to this new glibc feature
