This is in preparation for the aarch64 port only to have the long
double math symbols available on ld128 platforms. The implementations
should be fixed up later once we have proper tests for these functions.
Added bigendian handling for ld128 bit manipulations too.


acosh(x) is invalid for x<1, acoshf tried to be clever using
signed comparisions to handle all x<2 the same way, but the
formula was wrong on large negative values.


* use new ldshape union consistently
* add ld128 support to frexpl
* simplify sqrtl comment (ld64 is not just arm)


modifications:
* avoid unsigned>signed integer conversion
* do not handle special cases when they work correctly anyway
* more strict threshold values (0x1p26 instead of 0x1p28 etc)
* smaller code, cleaner branching logic
* same precision as the old code:
acosh(x) has up to 2ulp error in [1,1.125]
asinh(x) has up to 1.6ulp error in [0.125,0.5], [0.5,0.125]
atanh(x) has up to 1.7ulp error in [0.125,0.5], [0.5,0.125]


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 nearcomplete complex
math support. tgmath should also work (fully on gcccompatible
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 readding (if
they're correct) some asm functions that were dropped.
