This is not 100% correct (yet). Currently the pre-built assembly file is
only used with the new target linux-x86-64i. It's very easy to get other
x86-64 targets to use it too, but it's not there yet. There are some
cosmetical details left to decide about, let's keep that discussion on
john-dev.

The sse2i targets do use intrinsics - but currently they are not
precompiled with icc.
