 This pull request mostly add better support for the AVX512 instructions
 found in KNL and modern Intel Xeon / Core iN CPUs.

 There is one bugfix commit “Correct error in AVX512 sqrt implemention”
 which is important for those architectures (eg to compute sqrt(detg)).

 I am marking this as critical until I can verify that without this fix the
 result of a BBH simulation on eg Stampede2 is not incorrect because of
 using an incorrect sqrt() function.
