yeah, that was my conclusion from my first experiments as well.

This is a problem though, since one key point of llama.cpp is to make
best use of the current hardware. If we'd target some 15-year-old amd64
lowest common denominator, we'd go against that.

In my first experiments, I've also had problems with ROCm builds on
hosts without a GPU.

I have yet to investigate if/how capabilities can be generally enabled,
and use determined at runtime.

Another issue that stable is clearly the wrong distribution for this.
This is a project that is continuously gaining new features, so we'd
need to stable-updates.

I'll push a first draft soon, though it will definitely not be
upload-ready for the above reasons.
