The new hwcap values indicate support for:
- Vector packed decimal facility
- Vector enhancements facility 1
- Guarded storage facility

Note: arch12 is NOT the official name of the new CPU.
It refers to the edition number of the Principle of Operations manual.


     * sysdeps/s390/dl-procinfo.c (_dl_s390_cap_flags):
     Add vxd, vxe, gs flag.
     * sysdeps/s390/dl-procinfo.h: Add HWCAP_S390_VXD, HWCAP_S390_VXE,
     HWCAP_S390_GS capability.
     * sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/s390/bits/hwcap.h
     (HWCAP_S390_VXD, HWCAP_S390_VXE, HWCAP_S390_GS): Define.

FWIW, I think you can assume consensus for such s390-specific changes,
especially if they do not alter ABI (so that we can revert them if
necessary, without recompiling applications).

“In general this maintainership means that you have the discretion to
assume consensus for a change of your own without waiting for review or
comments on consensus.”


Agreed. Unless you are looking for additional review, as a machine maintainer
you have assumed consensus and are responsible for your changes :-)

Okay. Then I've committed it.
