we want to collect information which most recent hwcap is supported by a
machine.  The result should be a string like "x86-64-v2", "x86-64-v3",
"x86-64-v4", "z13", "z14", "p9", "p10" depending on "ld-linux --help"
output.  The string should be empty for architectures without glibc
hwcaps (currently armhf, arm64, i386, riscv64). The string should be
empty if no specific hwcaps is supported (e.g. on a power8 machine). The
string should be "N/A" (not available), when trying to run ld-linux on a
release with glibc (<< 2.33).

Note that lexical sorting won't work for "p9", "p10".

if test -x /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2; then
elif test -x /lib/powerpc64le-linux-gnu/ld64.so.2; then
elif test -x /lib/s390x-linux-gnu/ld64.so.1; then

if [ -n "$lddynload" ]; then
  $lddynload --help 2>&1 | awk '/^Subdirectories/,/^$/'
  supported=$($lddynload --help 2>&1 | awk '/^Subdirectories/,/^$/' | awk '/supported/ {print $1}')

Here, $supported has listed all supported hwcaps, not just the best
supported one.
