Testing the ABI in configure is not a hack, that's what ffmpeg do. But this is your right to be against it.

I have made multiple proposals.

Your only proposals are :
- "don't use assembly macros I don't understand"
- "don't add a test to autoconf"
- "don't modify my code"

So the only thing you are not opposed to is using the gcc extension ?

I am trying to help, but I do not have your experience with VLC, I don't know all the compilers you are targeting, all the OS/ARM platform the arm_neon module is supposed to work on.

Please try make a constructive comment.
