Okay, but how many ARM servers are in widespread use?  For the resources
required as a primary arch, there should be a large expected user base.
The first sentence of the detailed description on the feature page is
"ARM processors are the most popular CPUs in the world." but that is
entirely irrelevant if you aren't targeting a significant number of
those CPUs.
