classmethod_descriptor should either be uncallable or (better) accept the correct number of arguments.
The classmethod_descriptor can be regarded as the Python object corresponding directly to the underlying C function, as well as a descriptor object.
When called it should check that its first parameter is a subtype of the type in which it was declared, and then pass that as the 'self' parameter to the underlying C function. Currently it passes the type in which it was declared as its 'self' parameter, adding the remaining parameters.

This means that this fails:
float.__dict__['fromhex'](float, "1")
and this succeeds:
but it should be the other way around, otherwise it is impossible to pass a subtype as a parameter.

There is no tests for calling classmethod_descriptors in the test suite.

Attached patch includes tests and fixes the behaviour.
