Let me scale this back a little:

I will accept patches that fix use of clang-cl with our headers. That will 
allow user code to use clang-cl and against qtbase library headers. I think 
the only place that this affects is qfloat16.h anyway.

This may suffice for webenginewidgets.

I will not accept patches that make the use of intrinsics in the .cpp code 
uglier. And as discussed months ago, intrinsics for x86-64 will be mandatory 
to up to a minimum of AVX512. Compilers that fail to support them in either 
GCC or MSVC compatibility style will be dropped.

The only one on that list is clang-cl.
