Re: Test tstdiomisc fails when multiplication of NAN by -1 results in NAN
You have found a bug. The code should xor the sign bit when doing
negation. The existing code doesn't work for NANs. I'll try to
fix negdf2 and negsf2.
The problem is PA1.1 doesn't have a fneg instruction, so the above
takes a bit of work to implement. You will get the correct result
if you specify -march=2.0.

I believe 0xbff0000000000000 is the correct double representation
for -1.0. 0xbf800000 is the float representation for -1.0.
