Not an intrinsic. Builtins (like almost all other code) do not say
"generate this particular machine code", they say "generate code that
does <this>". That is one reason why builtins are more powerful than
inline assembler (another related reason is that they tell the compiler
exactly what behaviour is expected).

Unless we get a description of what this does in term of language
semantics (instead of generated machine code), there is no hope, even.
