Short version:
3.3 implemented new constraints on memoryview equality comparisons to eliminate cases that were incorrectly returning True when they should have returned False.

However, the format constraints are currently too restrictive, so some memoryview comparisons that correctly returned True in 3.2 are now also returning False. This patch fixes *those* comparisons to once again return True.

Moving back to deferred blocked status, since the spurious false negatives are a regression from 3.2. It's fine for beta2 to ship with this problem, but it needs to be fixed for rc1.
