    This needs to be "hwcap 0 nosegneg" to match:

    > +NOTE_KERNELCAP(1, "nosegneg")

    The actual bits you are using should be fine. (You're intentionally
    skipping bit 0 to work around hold glibc bugs, which you might want to add
    to the comments. Also a comment or perhaps using 1<<1 syntax would make it
    more clear that "2" is the bit mask containing bit 1 and that's why it has
    to be 2, and not because of some other magical property of 2.) But if
    kernel packagers don't write the matching bit number in their
    files, then lookups won't work right.
