gcc did not always drop excess precision according to c99 at assignments
before version 4.5 even if -std=c99 was requested which caused badly
broken mathematical functions on i386 when FLT_EVAL_METHOD!=0
but STRICT_ASSIGN was not used consistently and it is worked around for
old compilers with -ffloat-store so it is no longer needed
the new convention is to get the compiler respect c99 semantics and when
excess precision is not harmful use float_t or double_t or to specialize
code using FLT_EVAL_METHOD
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.
