patch to add more ULPs I needed in testing

In PowerPC soft-float testing I found some more ULPs were needed.  (It's
possible that these depend on fine details of the compiler and libc versions
being tested; after all, no FSF GCC version has support for soft-float long
double - effectively a regression - because the soft-fp patches needed for GCC
and attached to this bug have still not been reviewed.	The results of
hard-float long double computations can definitely depend on what compiler
optimizations happen in libgcc and libm.)

I'm not sure how the original ULP list was generated; it contains such oddities

ildouble: 1
ldouble: 1
ildouble: 2
ldouble: 2

which suggest it was not generated by concatenating the old file with the new
or increased ULPs and running through as described in
README.libm-test (doing this yields other changes to the file as well, but it
should be idempotent).	It may be as well to resort the file by passing it
through that process.
