Cavium ThunderX @ 2.0 GHz
   # -O2           -> Perform second-level optimisations.
   #                  Not -Os because ARM64 machines aren't starved for space.
   # -ggdb         -> Generate GDB debugging information.
   #                  This is used with splitdebug to make -dbg split packages.
   # -mcpu=armv8-a -> Require a ARMv8 CPU.
   # -mtune=cor... -> Tune for the Cortex-A53 core.  This is the most popular core
   #                  in both consumer SoCs and phones, and will provide the best
   #                  speed profile on the devices that are the slowest.
