Hi all,

This patch adds support for the Arm Cortex-A76 processor in changes.html for GCC 9.
It enables the AArch64 section of the page and adds the news blob there.
It also adds an entry to the already-existing arm entry.

Ok to commit to CVS (for the aarch64 parts)?

Thanks,
Kyrill

Thank you, Kyrill.

Should I also apply the change below to account for the recent
ARM to Arm rebranding?
