The final rounding operation should be done with the correct sign
otherwise huge results may incorrectly get rounded to or away from
infinity in upward or downward rounding modes.
This affected sinh and sinhf which set the sign on the result after
a potentially overflowing mul. There may be other non-nearest rounding
issues, but this was a known long standing issue with large ulp error
(depending on how ulp is defined near infinity).
The fix should have no effect on sinh and sinhf performance but may
have a tiny effect on cosh and coshf.
changed the algorithm: large input is not special cased
(when exp(-x) is small compared to exp(x))
and the threshold values are reevaluated
(fdlibm code had a log(2)/2 cutoff for which i could not find
justification, log(2) seems to be a better threshold and this
was verified empirically)
the new code is simpler, makes smaller binaries and should be
faster for common cases
the old comments were removed as they are no longer true for the
new algorithm and the fdlibm copyright was dropped as well
because there is no common code or idea with the original anymore
except for trivial ones.
do fabs by hand, don't check for nan and inf separately
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.
