This came up briefly on -policy some time ago as the result of #175074
and #175077, but without much in the way of resolution:

I'd interpreted that piece of policy to imply "shared libraries must
not contain non-PIC code", and as a result, have some packages with a
similar problem to yours sitting in limbo... if those x86-only non-PIC
optimizations still satisfy the requirements, I'd like to know too!
