Based on that pull request, it looks like it's related to the patches
used to avoid python C-extension modules with only one exported function
mentioned a year ago:

>From a glance at the Python C API docs, it looks like Python C extension
modules are supposed to have only one exported function:
https://docs.python.org/3/extending/extending.html#the-module-s-method-table-and-initialization-function
https://docs.python.org/3/extending/extending.html#providing-a-c-api-for-an-extension-module

The NumPy CFFI tests seem to want to use a few C extension modules as
normal shared libraries, which requires that the functions the tests
want to use to be exported from the DLL, but this seems to be a somewhat
unusual case.

I tend to compile my own versions of Cython (without patches), which may
have been picked up when I compiled the new version of NumPy.
