#1691: PyArray_FromArray: Properly handle F_CONTIGUOUS with 1D-arrays

 When passing F_CONTIGUOUS to PyArray_FromArray, one is NOT guaranteed an
 F_CONTIGUOUS array if ndim==1 (in that case one would have to pass
 C_CONTIGUOUS instead). I find this highly confusing and hope my patch is

 I could not find a way to exercise this from Python, hence no test case
 (the reason is that np.asfortranarray etc. seems to *always* copy, for
 some reason...perhaps that should be fixed too). See a Cython test case
 that gets fixed by this patch inline below.



     >>> a = np.zeros(10)[::2]
     >>> a = as_f_contiguous_1d(a)
     >>> a.flags.f_contiguous

 cimport numpy as np
 import numpy as np
 def as_f_contiguous_1d(arr):
     return np.PyArray_FROMANY(arr, np.NPY_DOUBLE, 1, 1,
