math: fix two fma issues (only affects non-nearest rounding mode, x86)

1) in downward rounding fma(1,1,-1) should be -0 but it was 0 with
gcc, the code was correct but gcc does not support FENV_ACCESS ON
so it used common subexpression elimination where it shouldn't have.
now volatile memory access is used as a barrier after fesetround.
2) in directed rounding modes there is no double rounding issue
so the complicated adjustments done for nearest rounding mode are
not needed. the only exception to this rule is raising the underflow
flag: assume "small" is an exactly representible subnormal value in
double precision and "verysmall" is a much smaller value so that
(long double)(small plus verysmall) == small
then
(double)(small plus verysmall)
raises underflow because the result is an inexact subnormal, but
(double)(long double)(small plus verysmall)
does not because small is not a subnormal in long double precision
and it is exact in double precision.
now this problem is fixed by checking inexact using fenv when the
result is subnormal
