Possible users from the tree: 
  altivec useflag consumers (many)
  media libraries (x264, x265, libpng and others.)

also firefox-70[1] will have auto-detection of features but we may want to
prevent automagic optimizations.


cpuid2cpuflags support[2] is ready and and will be merged soon,
so users will have a gentoo-way of setting those flags.


And this patch in github PR[3] format for easy viewing
