I would like to request reviews for this s390-only bug fix:
z/Architecture vector instructions require operating system support. Without os support, any attempt to execute such an instruction results in a SIGFPE signal. The presence of such support cannot be checked for by inspecting the cpu’s facility bits alone.
During startup, a vector instruction is attempted to execute and, in case of a SIGFPE, the vector facility is marked unavailable.
