Description

Intel Ivy Bridge adds support for two new architecture extensions. The first is the F16C series of half precision floating point instructions. The second is the Intel rdrand which allows use of the hardware random number generator. This ticket covers proper detection and feature support in the operating system and displays it in isainfo.
