When FLT_EVAL_METHOD!=0 (only i386 with x87 fp) the excess
precision of an expression must be removed in an assignment.
(gcc needs -fexcess-precision=standard or -std=c99 for this)
This is done by extra load/store instructions which adds code
bloat when lot of temporaries are used and it makes the result
less precise in many cases.
Using double_t and float_t avoids these issues on i386 and
it makes no difference on other archs.
For now only a few functions are modified where the excess
precision is clearly beneficial (mostly polynomial evaluations
object size differences on i386, gcc-4.8:

zero, one, two, half are replaced by const literals
The policy was to use the f suffix for float consts (1.0f),
but don't use suffix for long double consts (these consts
can be exactly represented as double).
thanks to the hard work of Szabolcs Nagy (nsz), identifying the best
(from correctness and license standpoint) implementations from freebsd
and openbsd and cleaning them up! musl should now fully support c99
float and long double math functions, and has near-complete complex
math support. tgmath should also work (fully on gcc-compatible
compilers, and mostly on any c99 compiler).
based largely on commit 0376d44a890fea261506f1fc63833e7a686dca19 from
nsz's libm git repo, with some additions (dummy versions of a few
missing long double complex functions, etc.) by me.
various cleanups still need to be made, including re-adding (if
they're correct) some asm functions that were dropped.
