Bummer to do it so low level if we can delegate this to the compiler though.
I don't know MSVC well enough and don't have access to one to test it but: This would also only work if there were a compiler-independent way of writing inline assembler. Is that possible?
Other fun facts: Clang doesn't even define `__builtin_cpu_init()`.
