Correctly treat built-in method (method descriptors) as methods

This fixes a bug where method descriptors were treated as data
descriptors. As the builtin_method_descriptor type is not exported
anywhere in Python, we check for the name here. As we know that
it is a descriptor, this should not be a problem.
