@pmatilai The addition of this new architecture name is because we need a way to declare incompatibility at the RPM level for CPUs that don't support it. This is pretty much the only way we can do it. When this was first being worked on, nobody seemed to think there was any better way to do this then, either. 😞 

As for the assembler code.... Changing that to C would likely require introducing a library dependency to shift the assembler to something out of our purview. That's not to say that isn't necessarily a bad idea, but I don't have a good idea of what to pick and how it would work in RPM...
