Subject: Re: [RFC PATCH v4 00/13] riscv: Add vector ISA support

Hi Greentime & Vincent,

Thx for the dynamic vlen implementation. I've two suggestions:
 - Please give out glibc patches mail URL, we need to review them together.
 - We need to consider that not all processes need vectors. Most
system processes do not have vector features, and we should not force
save/restore vector for every process.
