That runs into e.g. different long double formats (so you'd need ulps
files to specify format names, not "ldouble", which is a good idea anyway,
and then you'd need to select appropriate files depending on long double
format - and you don't really want to duplicate the sysdeps etc. logic
that selects long double formats, but you also have the tables of ulps
generated for the manual, which does not depend on the glibc configuration
and does not know what configurations use what sysdeps directories, so
maybe the tables in the manual would also need rearranging somehow to have
generic and architecture-specific ulps).
