  Description     : BLAS-like Library Instantiation Software Framework

This is a relatively new BLAS implementation and a new candidate to
libblas.so.3 . However unlike OpenBLAS, BLIS doesn't provide LAPACK API/ABI.

Upstream benchmarks shows a promising and comparative performance compared
to OpenBLAS and MKL, however I'm still not quite sure how fast it is,
objectively. So maybe I'll set the priority to 37, which means for the
libblas.so.3 alternative,

  OpenBLAS > BLIS > Atlas > Netlib > MKL
