That's a nice addition to the compile farm. Thanks for providing it.

For those who are not aware, it is an AMRv8.2-a machine. It has cpu
extensions like SHA512 and SHA3:

% sysctl -a | grep brand
machdep.cpu.brand_string: Apple M1


% sysctl -a | grep armv8
hw.optional.armv8_1_atomics: 1
hw.optional.armv8_crc32: 1
hw.optional.armv8_2_fhm: 1
hw.optional.armv8_2_sha512: 1
hw.optional.armv8_2_sha3: 1
