Subject: [PATCH][AArch64] Enable AUTOPREFETCHER_WEAK with -mcpu=generic
Many supported cores use the AUTOPREFETCHER_WEAK setting which tries
to order loads and stores to improve streaming performance.  Since significant
gains were reported in http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/534469/ it seems
like a good idea to enable this setting too for -mcpu=generic.  Since the
weak model only keeps the order if it doesn't make the schedule worse, it
should not impact performance adversely on cores that don't show a gain.
Any objections?
