GCC117 and GCC118 from the Compile Farm are ARMv8 machines with CRC and Crypto.

There are four other ARMv8 machines, but they are early Mustang
boards. The early Mustang boards are ARMv8, but lack CRC and Crypto.

I believe the CFarm machines are A-57's, not A-72's however. The
A-57's were the server cpu's (as opposed to the A-53's, which were
more dev-board quality).
