Any thoughts on this?
Please be aware of bug #1036818 [1]. Currently /proc/cpuinfo is empty on armel ci.debian.net workers. (I'm failing to spot neon in the list of features of that machine.) Paul [1] https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=1036818

Thanks for the heads-up!

Ugh, even with that fix (which was merged upstream today), it looks like when you have arm64 bare metal with a qemu armhf VM, neon doesn't get included in /proc/cpuinfo despite arm64 supporting it as part of the core architecture. So my plan to deal with autopkgtest won't work..

Actually it sounds like there's a lot of overlap with arm64's asimd, so maybe checking for 'neon' *or* 'asimd' is the way to go.
