We need a function with a pointer that can called by the ufunc. I was
guessing that with /Ox optimization windows might be using a hardware
instructions where it could  and MS forgot to put a corresponding version in
the library. In any case, the current code is safe, if ugly, and if you can
get the detection set up right it won't get in the way.
