Gotcha.  That was very hidden in the 24k lines.  Please make this (and
any similar goodies) be their own patches.

Also, please consider spelling it differently:

simd_context_t simd_context = simd_get();

Because we'll feel very silly the first time some architecture has
more than one possible state.  (It wouldn't be entirely insane for x86
to distinguish between "no SIMD", "XMM only", and "go to town!", for
example.)
