+    The Scalable Vector Extension (SVE) is now supported as an
+    optional extension to the Armv8.2-A architecture and newer.
+    This support includes automatic vectorization with SVE instructions,
+    but it does not yet include the SVE Arm C Language Extensions (ACLE).
+    It can be enabled by specifying the <code>+sve</code> architecture
+    extension (for example, <code>-march=armv8.2-a+sve</code>).
+    By default, the generated code works with all vector lengths,
+    but it can be made specific to <i>N</i>-bit vectors using
+    <code>-msve-vector-bits=<i>N</i></code>.

        Support has been added for the following processors
