As I said earlier, the problem is fully understood. We just don't have a
solution for it yet.

What happens is that the unit tests have to directly #include the C
files they test because some of the functions tested are static. But
some of the #included C files use intrinsics with CPU detection so they
require being compiled with (e.g.) -msse4, but as soon as we include
those compile flags, the compiler is free to use these instructions
anywhere. And this cases the Illegal instruction failure.
