Thanks for looking into this.

I would like to add, for clarity, that macOS Big Sur runs
natively on existing Macs which runs x86-64. D works without any
problems, out of the box on these systems. This post is
specifically about the new Apple Silicon, ARM64 (AArch64).

As much as possible upstream. Hopefully it shouldn't be that much
since it works on iOS. There might be some required changes to
Phobos as well.
