commit ca2fcac629b9b7781ccd52685b28741d89ff128f

    Fix ldbl-128ibm tanhl inaccuracy for small arguments (bug 19349).
    The ldbl-128ibm implementation of tanhl is inaccurate for small
    arguments, because it returns x*(1+x) (maybe in an attempt to raise
    "inexact") when x itself would be the accurate return value but
    multiplying by 1+x introduces large errors.  This patch fixes it to
    return x in that case (when the mathematical result is x plus a
    negligible remainder on the order of x^3) to avoid those errors.
    Tested for powerpc.
    	[BZ #19349]
    	* sysdeps/ieee754/ldbl-128ibm/s_tanhl.c (__tanhl): Return argument
    	when small.
