Just saw your patch.  Watch out, there are at least two different
representations for nans.  In GCC, they are called mips and ieee.
However, as far as I can tell, PA-RISC used the mips format before
mips.  Both formats are complient with the original IEEE standard,
so it's also a bit of a misnomer to call the other format the IEEE
