Hey Dan,

Thank you for the support, and I will try to keep it up to date. I just 
launched a patch to remove the AVX2 hard disable.
But I never received / send a email to you.

Testing "old" code does not make too much sense (I think we mailed a couple of days ago about that). Other from that I strongly support Egbert's PPA becoming the official one. Had no problems so far and I like the test setup.
