> Taking into account that we are very late in the JDK 9 release cycle, a full fix being very complex and requiring testing on AVX-512 supporting platforms and also due to other problems with AVX=3 in the past [1], we decided to make PostLoopMultiversioning and UseAVX=3 experimental in JDK 9. It will be disabled by default but still available if the user sets -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions on the command line.
