Re: -fno-asynchronous-unwind-tables, when cross-compiling from Linux, I
observe bit-to-bit identical i40e_rxtx_vec_avx512.c.obj. My guess it that this
option somehow affects GCC inlining heuristics. Similar issue existed in
librte_acl (at least a year ago win GCC 6, I believe), where GCC generated
incorrect code unless certain functions had been inlined (caught by test
app). No an AVX expert, just my 2c.
