As the function is provided only on x86_64, it needs to be guarded
by defined __x86_64__ too (or have some way how arch specific
headers can tell what function are elemental).
Also, only the N (notinbranch) version is provided, so you'd
need to use "omp declare simd notinbranch", and furthermore only
the AVX2 version is provided (that is not possible for gcc,
you need all of SSE2, AVX and AVX2 versions, the other two can be
thunked (extract arguments and call cos in a loop or similarly, then
pass result in vector reg again).
