 * __log1p(f):
 * Return log(1+f) - f for 1+f in ~[sqrt(2)/2, sqrt(2)].
 *
 * The following describes the overall strategy for computing
 * logarithms in base e.  The argument reduction and adding the final
 * term of the polynomial are done by the caller for increased accuracy
 * when different bases are used.
 *
 * Method :
 *   1. Argument Reduction: find k and f such that
 *                      x = 2^k * (1+f),
 *         where  sqrt(2)/2 < 1+f < sqrt(2) .
 *
 *   2. Approximation of log(1+f).
 *      Let s = f/(2+f) ; based on log(1+f) = log(1+s) - log(1-s)
 *               = 2s + 2/3 s**3 + 2/5 s**5 + .....,
 *               = 2s + s*R
 *      We use a special Reme algorithm on [0,0.1716] to generate
 *      a polynomial of degree 14 to approximate R The maximum error
 *      of this polynomial approximation is bounded by 2**-58.45. In
 *      other words,
 *                      2      4      6      8      10      12      14
 *          R(z) ~ Lg1*s +Lg2*s +Lg3*s +Lg4*s +Lg5*s  +Lg6*s  +Lg7*s
 *      (the values of Lg1 to Lg7 are listed in the program)
 *      and
 *          |      2          14          |     -58.45
 *          | Lg1*s +...+Lg7*s    -  R(z) | <= 2
 *          |                             |
 *      Note that 2s = f - s*f = f - hfsq + s*hfsq, where hfsq = f*f/2.
 *      In order to guarantee error in log below 1ulp, we compute log
 *      by
 *              log(1+f) = f - s*(f - R)        (if f is not too large)
 *              log(1+f) = f - (hfsq - s*(hfsq+R)).     (better accuracy)
 *
 *      3. Finally,  log(x) = k*ln2 + log(1+f).
 *                          = k*ln2_hi+(f-(hfsq-(s*(hfsq+R)+k*ln2_lo)))
 *         Here ln2 is split into two floating point number:
 *                      ln2_hi + ln2_lo,
 *         where n*ln2_hi is always exact for |n| < 2000.
 *
 * Special cases:
 *      log(x) is NaN with signal if x < 0 (including -INF) ;
 *      log(+INF) is +INF; log(0) is -INF with signal;
 *      log(NaN) is that NaN with no signal.
 *
 * Accuracy:
 *      according to an error analysis, the error is always less than
 *      1 ulp (unit in the last place).
 *
 * Constants:
 * The hexadecimal values are the intended ones for the following
 * constants. The decimal values may be used, provided that the
 * compiler will convert from decimal to binary accurately enough
 * to produce the hexadecimal values shown.
