Issue description

Trying to compile libzmq with MinGW - the issue is fairly obvious. __except should not have gone through a code review as it's a Microsoft specific extension.

Interesting that the mingw build test did not catch this:

https://ci.appveyor.com/project/zeromq/libzmq/builds/26024001/job/cp8r6o28y931toy2

Could you please send a PR to fix it?

@bluca Sorry, it's obvious why it doesn't compile but I am not a ZeroMQ contributor and not entirely sure why __except was used so can't say I know the right fix.

Fortunately it worked fine with the previous version 4.3.1 and only 4.3.2 is broken.

I can give the fix fix a try if no other person shows up Perhaps the original author @moretromain could give this a shot?

I'll be happy to test.

Not sure if this is related. But I get this error when on "latest_release" branch. So when switching to master and compiling with mingw I get the error below because it does not like storing a function pointer into a (void*)

C:\...\libzmq\src\thread.cpp:150: error: invalid conversion from 'int (*)(EXCEPTION_RECORD*, void*, CONTEXT*, void*) {aka int (*)(_EXCEPTION_RECORD*, void*, _CONTEXT*, void*)}' to 'void*' [-fpermissive] rec.Handler = continue_execution; ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I suspect this change has caused a crash under OpenCppCoverage with Visual Studio builds starting in ZeroMQ 4.3.3:
