openSUSE Tumbleweed gains optional x86-64-v3 optimization

Tumbleweed users who performed a distribution upgrade or zypper dup the last weeks on the rolling release with “recommended packages” enabled (the default) and matching hardware received a new package named patterns-glibc-hwcaps-x86_64_v3 automatically installed. This is a new Tumbleweed feature which will also automatically install the “recommended” package named with the -x86-64-v3 name suffix that provides the optimized version of the library.
