> Sorry, I guess that I should have added more context into the commit message.  This was discussed on IRC between Tim, Joey, Renato, and I.  The ACLE defines the spelling to be __sevl, and since the change wasn’t there for very long, we decided that we would use the proper spelling.  __sevl is already in a reserved namespace for the system, and providing an official extension symbol in that namespace is fine.

ACLE defines the spelling in the arm_acle.h header file instead of the
compiler intrinsics.

Since I'm currently working on the ACLE header file, I think it would
be best to stick to the conventional naming and map __sevl to
__builtin_arm_sevl in arm_acle.h.
