This was already present a year ago (just without the __MIC__ check),
but disabling it in there makes little difference (~1% speedup when
running 1 thread, ~1% slowdown when running 8 threads).  So I guess it
started making a bigger difference along with some other change, and we
should find the cause of the major regression first (that other change?)
Once we find and fix that one, it will probably be fine and preferable
to leave the "#if __SSE4_1__ || __MIC__" block as-is (enabled on XOP).
