The x86 backend is entirely disabled in the 64bit windows build because
configure fails to compile the cpuid assembly (in my mingw64 with gcc 4.7).

It says:
  40: Error: unsupported for 'mov'
  42: Error: register type mismatch for 'xchg'
and these correspond to:
  40: mov %rbx,%ebx
  41: cpuid
  42: xchg %ebx,%rbx
which come from:
  "mov %%rbx,%2\n\t"
  "xchg %2,%%rbx\n\t"
  "movl %k2,%1\n\t"
  : "+a" (*eax), "=m" (*ebx), "=&r"(sav_rbx),
    "+c" (*ecx), "=&d" (*edx));

I guess having both ebx and rbx on these lines isn't OK. On Linux, I get
rsi instead of ebx, no problem.

Samuel, any idea?
