Remember filing bugs in Bugzilla when fixing anything that would have been
user-visible in a release. That generally applies to bugs shown up by
linknamespace test failures, unless the bug itself is new since the last
release (not just the tests being new).
I filed bugs for the couple of namespace issues I fixed recently,
and updated NEWS and the ChangeLog with those bug numbers.
On tile we use the no-op version in math/feupdateenv.c, but surely we should
be calling these routines with the __feupdateenv entry point names?
See for example
<https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2014-12/msg00749.html>, for which
I'm hoping for a sanity check, addressing such issues for feraiseexcept.
I filed bug 17748 for this issue, but I need to get back to other work for
the time being, so I won't be looking into a real fix in the short term.
I suppose another hack fix would be to just add some empty #defines for
tile to do nothing for the fe* functions that are causing issues here.
