Synopsis

AX_EXT

Description

Find supported SIMD extensions by requesting cpuid. When a SIMD extension is found, the -m"simdextensionname" is added to SIMD_FLAGS if compiler supports it. For example, if "sse2" is available then "-msse2" is added to SIMD_FLAGS.

Find other supported CPU extensions by requesting cpuid. When a processor extension is found, the -m"extensionname" is added to CPUEXT_FLAGS if compiler supports it. For example, if "bmi2" is available then "-mbmi2" is added to CPUEXT_FLAGS.

This macro calls:

  AC_SUBST(SIMD_FLAGS)
  AC_SUBST(CPUEXT_FLAGS)

And defines:

  HAVE_RDRND / HAVE_BMI1 / HAVE_BMI2 / HAVE_ADX / HAVE_MPX
  HAVE_PREFETCHWT1 / HAVE_ABM / HAVE_MMX / HAVE_SSE / HAVE_SSE2
  HAVE_SSE3 / HAVE_SSSE3 / HAVE_SSE4_1 / HAVE_SSE4_2 / HAVE_SSE4a
  HAVE_SHA / HAVE_AES / HAVE_AVX / HAVE_FMA3 / HAVE_FMA4 / HAVE_XOP
  HAVE_AVX2 / HAVE_AVX512_F / HAVE_AVX512_CD / HAVE_AVX512_PF
  HAVE_AVX512_ER / HAVE_AVX512_VL / HAVE_AVX512_BW / HAVE_AVX512_DQ
  HAVE_AVX512_IFMA / HAVE_AVX512_VBMI
