I think we should change the ([a-z]*) to ([a-z]+).

I presume if a version is used it means one cannot rely on the default
version. So we can't always encourage them to be removed. To simplify
things we can always require minor numbers. We can also always require
underscores. Something like

^rv64_i(\d+p\d+)?_m\1?_a\1?(_f\1?)?(_d\1?)? ... ((_z[imafdqcbvkh]|_x)[a-z]+\1?)*$

Sounds good. We can also easily add _s|_h|_zxm to the OR if we want. But,
there is a problem with the OR. By using it we don't enforce order. To be
pedantic we should ensure _z comes before _s, then _h, then _zxm, then _x.
