This is now wrong and I could reproduce a segfault on OSX 10.11, xcode
8. The buffersize "hexdig + 1" has to match the type we are printing.
We can't calculate the size from Py_hash_t but print ulong.

Most safely and without precision loss we could do it like the patch

1. "static const" was required to actually fix MSVC's VLA issue.
2. The macro PRIxMAX is the same as "%jx". I've choosed the macro
because it should be compatible to Visual Studio >=2013 while "%jx"
would need Visual Studio >=2015. Moreover when using incompatible
compilers the macro would give an error at compile time rather
than "%jx" would just crash at runtime.
