Thanks for the suggestion, this will be into v3

This cpu has 4 performance monitor (PM), the first one is reserved to
count cycles, and it is cycle accurate.

I didn't knew about the RDRAND insruction, but no this CPU do not have
an instruction like that.

It's a VLIW core, a bit like Itanium, there are currently not publicly
available documentation. We have started a discussion internally at
Kalray to share more information regarding this CPU and its ABI.

A very crude instruction listing can be found in our fork of
gdb-binutils: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kalray/binutils/binutils-2_35_2/coolidge/opcodes/kv3-opc.c

Best regards,
