This enables SSE2 on Windows by default.

If we disable it, as there is no autodetection anymore (why?), it will
be slower than Qt5.2.1 on all processors.
If we enable it, it will break in older processors, including Athlon XP
and some Pentium-M.

Seeing that people complained when 2.1.0 broke those processors, and the
bugreports we had, I think it is a bad idea to do this now.

I suggest we postpone this change for 3.0.0, once we have a good way for
