Maybe your bug report would have been more convincing if the test case
results were appended, and did actually show both the bug, and your
proposed fix performing better than generic rint.

I ran a quick test, and find that your code doesn't work on ix86 (myrint
reproducing the input float there). A glibc maintainer testing this on his
home machine might have given up fast ...

Other than that: no idea. Did you ask on the libc ML?
