[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] Improve avx2 configure test

From: Dr. David Alan Gilbert (git)
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] Improve avx2 configure test
Date: Wed, 1 Jun 2016 12:28:21 +0100

From: "Dr. David Alan Gilbert" <address@hidden>

When configured with --extra-cflags=-O2 gcc optimised out the test
and the readelf failed the check leaving avx2 disabled.

The fix for that is to remove 'static' on 'foo'.
At the same time, I thought it best to be more paranoid on
checking whether both the compiler and assembler could actually
use avx2, so make a couple of bogus calls to the the mm256

(I also wondered about trying to replicate the gcc4.9 test that's
used in cutils.c - but I'd prefer to know the exact failure mode rather
than test for the version).
