    Phoronix: Linux 5.17 AArch64 Code Has SME Preparations, Adds KCSAN Support

    While the Linux 5.17 merge window hasn't opened up yet, there have been a few early pull requests sent out this week ahead of this imminent next kernel cycle. One of those already sent out is the ARM64/AArch64 CPU architecture code updates for Linux 5.17...

    Typo?

      The image is a 32 bit XU4, using an image of a C4 or N2 would be better.

        OK, I'll bite, How does, "Usage of SHA3 instructions for speeding up XOR." work? How does using a hashing algorithm speed up a logical gate operation? I had the basic undergrad computer architecture class and I thought XOR was implemented with an OR gate and a not gate on one of the two leads to the gate, simple enough? No?

          "Use the EOR3 instruction to implement xor_blocks() if the instruction is available, which is the case if the CPU implements the SHA-3 extension."
