Feature request: _mm_stream_si64

An intrinsic for non-temporal store of ordinary 64-bit data is needed. IA64, AMD64, and possible others support this natively.

This type of store can achieve a 2X or so performance gain.
>How-To-Repeat:
On a system that supports native 64-bit registers, try to do a non-temporal store without using assembly language.
>Fix:
Implement an intrinsic function that stores a 64-bit general purpose register using a non-temporal store.
