write floating point limit constants to 21 significant decimal places

this is enough to produce the correct value even if the constant is
interpreted as 80-bit extended precision, which matters on archs with
excess precision (FLT_EVAL_METHOD==2) under at least some
interpretations of the C standard. the shorter representations, while
correct if converted to the nominal precision at translation time,
could produce an incorrect value at extended precision, yielding
results such as (double)DBL_MAX != DBL_MAX.
