Submit Notes

 The numactl mechanism was used to bind copies to processors. The config file option 'submit'
 was used to generate numactl commands to bind each copy to a specific processor.
 For details, please see the config file.

Operating System Notes

 Stack size set to unlimited using "ulimit -s unlimited"
 Transparent Huge Pages enabled by default
 Prior to runcpu invocation
 Filesystem page cache synced and cleared with:
 sync; echo 3 >       /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
 runcpu command invoked through numactl i.e.:
  numactl --interleave=all runcpu <etc>

General Notes

Environment variables set by runcpu before the start of the run:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH = "/home/cpu2017_u2/lib/ia32:/home/cpu2017_u2/lib/intel64"

 Binaries compiled on a system with 1x Intel Core i9-7900X CPU + 32GB RAM
 memory using Redhat Enterprise Linux 7.5
NA: The test sponsor attests, as of date of publication, that CVE-2017-5754 (Meltdown)
is mitigated in the system as tested and documented.
