[RFC] [PowerPC] Removing PowerPC QPX Support

Hi, everyone,

I would like to know if anyone is still making use of the support in the PowerPC backend for the IBM BG/Q supercomputer, including the support for its QPX vector instruction set. If you are, please reply. I’m not aware of any still-running BG/Q machines, and if no one is making use of this functionality, I propose that we remove it.

Thanks again,

Hal

CC Justin Hibbits who may be using QPX.

(I don't know anything about QPX.)

Unfortunately, I don't own a BG/Q, or any BG. Doubt I could afford the
power bill for one.

Re… If no one objects, we’ll take action to remove QPX support soon. Thanks.

Best,
