GLIBC patch accepted: Added POWER9 platform support

GLIBC patch accepted: Added POWER9 platform support

Following the release of our Power ISA 3.0, I added the platform information for the next generation POWER9 processor to glibc.

This includes platform support in dl-procinfo and new ‘power9‘ subdirectory and ‘Implies’ infrastructure. Next step is to sync the HWCAP bits with the kernel, when that is done on their side. Committed as b1f19b8.

New Power Instruction Set Architecture 3.0 available

Power ISA 3.0

We have just published the new POWER Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) version 3.0. This new ISA supports the next generation POWER processors and continues the evolution over the previous ISA for Power architecture. It is the first generation of the architecture developed and released after the creation of the OpenPOWER Foundation.

This new Power ISA 3.0 has no longer optional categories, as well as separate server and embedded ISA architecture options. This new specification supports the entire range of implementations with no distinction.

The new Power ISA 3.0 can be downloaded here: http://ibm.biz/power-isa3.
