80-bit float is only a compact 96-bit float.

In fact this work is 4 years old, so I don't remember all the details.

The first FPU bugs have been found when I have started to try to run
gtk-demo that uses some FPU functions. I've then of course, tested with
the glibc math tests and I think also with gcc tests, especially
gfortran tests (I think...) and I have compared the result on a real
machine (and fixed the issues).

If it is important for you to know the accuracy of the emulation, I can
try to re-run all these stuffs.
