gallivm: set mcpu when initializing llvm execution engine
Previously llvm detected cpu features automatically when the execution engine was created (based on host cpu). This is no longer the case, which meant llvm was then not able to emit some of the intrinsics we used as we didn't specify any sse attributes (only on avx supporting systems this was not a problem since despite at least some llvm versions enabling it anyway we always set this manually). So, instead of trying to figure out which MAttrs to set just set MCPU. This fixes Reviewed-by: Jose Fonseca <> Tested-by: Vinson Lee <> (cherry picked from commit cad60420d5ea36a4b6fa2e6c91317f71423aa63e) Conflicts: src/gallium/auxiliary/gallivm/lp_bld_misc.cpp Nominated-by: Laurent Carlier <> Bugzilla:
