there was some question as to how many decimal places to use, since
one decimal place is always sufficient to identify the smallest
denormal uniquely. for now, I'm following the example in the C
standard which is consistent with the other min/max macros we already
had in place.


if the compiler provides a value, use it; otherwise fallback to the
platform default (2).


DECIMAL_DIG is not the same as LDBL_DIG
type_DIG is the maximimum number of decimal digits that can survive a
round trip from decimal to type and back to decimal.
DECIMAL_DIG is the minimum number of decimal digits required in order
for any floating point type to survive the round trip to decimal and
back, and it is generally larger than LDBL_DIG. since the exact
formula is nontrivial, and defining it larger than necessary may be
legal but wasteful, just define the right value in bits/float.h.


actually FLT_ROUNDS needs to expand to a static inline function that
obtains the current rounding mode and returns it, but that will be
added later with fenv.h stuff.
