Subject[PATCH 0/3] RISC-V: Add Bitmanip/Scalar Crypto HWCAP
This patchset proposes a currently viable and forward
compatible way to expose the bitmanip/scalar crypto
capability of the platform to the userspace.

Currently viable refers to the property that hardware
platforms can easily modify the riscv,isa field in DT to
tell the kernel it has the capability. Note that QEMU
has already done so in its device tree.

Forward compatible refers to the property that userspace
can still detect the capability of the environment by
using HWCAP regardless of how the mechanism changes
below kernel in the future. I do know that it has not
been settled how to discover a capability, but I think
kernel has to offer some API after all, and HWCAP
is the preferred way among other mechanisms for now.

More discussion on userspace discovering
can be found on my PR to openssl
