An iosubmit function which returns void and doesn't tell its callers
whether it succeeded or not? That looks non-optimal to say the least.
Why isn't there a fallback function which to call when the CPU doesn't
Because then you can use alternative_call() and have the thing work
regardless of hardware support for MOVDIR*.
+ const u8 *from = src;
+ const u8 *end = from + count * 64;
+ if (!cpu_has_write512())
If anything, that thing needs to go and you should use
as it looks to me like you would care about speed on this fast path?
