Function multiversioning attribute macros for Rust.

What is function multiversioning?

Many CPU architectures have a variety of instruction set extensions that provide additional functionality. Common examples are single instruction, multiple data (SIMD) extensions such as SSE and AVX on x86/x86-64 and NEON on ARM/AArch64. When available, these extended features can provide significant speed improvements to some functions. These optional features cannot be haphazardly compiled into programs--executing an unsupported instruction will result in a crash.

Function multiversioning is the practice of compiling multiple versions of a function with various features enabled and safely detecting which version to use at runtime.

Example

The multiversion macro compiles a function for multiple possible targets, and selects the optimal one at runtime:

use multiversion::multiversion;

#[multiversion(targets("x86_64+avx", "aarch64+neon"))]
fn square(x: &mut [f32]) {
    for v in x {
        *v *= *v;
    }
}
