Unless libraries are written with METH_FASTCALL (or using Cython), tp_ccall
can't have any gain for 3rd party functions written in C.
In other words, if many libraries start supporting FASTCALL, tp_ccall will
have more gain at the time when Python 3.8 is released.

Even though it's private at 3.7, extension authors can start using it at
their risk if we decide METH_FASTCALL is public in 3.8 without any change
