Maybe. Would you rather pursue that avenue first? At least if I'm reading the code right (which I may very well not be doing, being generally unfamiliar with gcc internals), -mtune=generic enables the equivalent of ARMv8 support: https://gcc.gnu.org/git/?p=gcc.git;a=blob;f=gcc/common/config/aarch64/aarch64-common.c;h=0bddcc8c3e9282a957c5479b4df7f68058093bab;hb=HEAD#l176 https://gcc.gnu.org/git/?p=gcc.git;a=blob;f=gcc/config/aarch64/aarch64-cores.def;h=ea9b98b4b0ad2a578755561bba5b6d5c56115994;hb=HEAD https://gcc.gnu.org/git/?p=gcc.git;a=blob;f=gcc/config/aarch64/aarch64.h;h=8f08bad3562c4cbe8acdf5891e84f89d23ea6784;hb=HEAD#l226 noah
