Yeah, so PeterZ was asking on IRC today how to detect static_cpu_has()
and even if we do some magic matching, nothing beats an explicit flag.

And I'm proposing this because the flags thing has come up in the past
already. So it's not like it won't find more users. We can do all kinds
of fancy alternatives processing when we tag the call sites properly.

Now lemme look at the rest of the patchset.


Good mailing practices for 400: avoid top-posting and trim the reply.
