ICC missing bmi2 target

GCC (and clang) support __attribute__((__target__("bmi2"))), ICC doesn't, which can cause compile failures due to ICC masquerading as GCC (defining __GNUC__ and friends).

Reproducible by simply adding the attribute to a function, for example:

_attribute__((__target__("bmi2")))
int main (void) {
  return 0;
}

Will trigger something like

icc (ICC) 17.0.1 20161005

bmi2.c(1): warning #3550: target attribute not recognized
  __attribute__((__target__("bmi2")))
