--- Comment #4 from Jacob Lifshay <programmerjake at gmail.com> ---
if we can, we should try to use the v2 abi without altivec since it also has
many other improvements.

*vsx is actually a misnomer when applied to powerpc's SIMD support in general*,
it refers specifically to the new vector-scalar interop instructions added in
POWER9 (or 8? icr), not to SIMD in general, we should use either altivec or
SIMD as terms that people will recognize otherwise we may get software support
for SIMD without vsx -- not the intended endpoint.
