I do wonder if it would be helpful for the API to be able to provide a
'prefix value' for prematching. So that, for example,
would pass 'cortex' as a pre-match and then the compiler could supply
just the valid cpus that start with cortex. or
would pass 'cortex-a5+' and the compiler can supply the valid extensions
to that CPU.
