> Subject: [PATCH v7 0/3] run-time Linking support
> 
> This patchset dynamically selects functions at run-time based on CPU flags
> that current machine supports.This patchset modifies mempcy, memcpy perf
> test and x86 EFD, using function pointers and bind them at constructor time.
> Then in the cloud environment, users can compiler once for the minimum target
> such as 'haswell'(not 'native') and run on different platforms (equal or above
> haswell) and can get ISA optimization based on running CPU.

> v2
> * Use gcc function multi-versioning to avoid compilation issues.
> * Add macros for AVX512 and AVX2. Only if users enable AVX512 and the compiler
> supports it, the AVX512 codes would be compiled. Only if the compiler supports
> AVX2, the AVX2 codes would be compiled.
> 
> v3
> * Reduce function calls via only keep rte_memcpy_xxx.
> * Add conditions that when copy size is small, use inline code path.
> Otherwise, use dynamic code path.
> * To support attribute target, clang version must be greater than 3.7.
> Otherwise, would choose SSE/AVX code path, the same as before.
> * Move two mocro functions to the top of the code since they would be used in
> inline SSE/AVX and dynamic SSE/AVX codes.
> 
> v4
> * Modify rte_memcpy.h to several .c files and modify makefiles to compile
> AVX2 and AVX512 files.
> 
> v5
> * Delete redundant repeated codes of rte_memcpy_xxx.
> * Modify makefiles to enable reuse of existing rte_memcpy.
> * Delete redundant codes of rte_efd_x86.h in v4. Move it into .c file and enable
> compilation -mavx2 for it in makefile since it is already chosen at run-time.
> 
> v6
> * Fix shared target build failure.
> * Safely remove redundant efd x86 avx2 codes since the file is compiled
> with -mavx2.
> 
> v7
> * Modify the added version map code in v6 to be more reasonable.
> * Safely remove redundant efd x86 avx2 codes since the file is compiled
> with -mavx2.
