    #21167: Fix definition of NAN when ICC used without -fp-model strict.
    Patch from Chris Hogan of Intel, reviewed by Mark Dickinson.

I don't know if it should be kept if Py_NAN is modified to use the NAN constant. In case of doubt, I prefer to remove the ICC code since we have no ICC buildbot anymore and maybe ICC changed in the meanwhile.

Also, I don't have acess to ICC.
