The ThunderX for sure, and I've heard the expressobin might not but I'm not 
sure. I didn't want to have an incomplete list. The closest I've heard for a 
way to check is to compile and run a program called all-arch, but it's harder 
on a source distro.

I could change it to "... not allow this functionality, notably the ThunderX."
