OK, thanks for the heads up.

Yes, I think I could. :)
As noted by Joseph in that thread , the test suite has little coverage
for -mlong-double-64, which could make it hard to review. On the other
hand, I have been working on some new tests for -mabi=ieeelongdouble (not
yet on master), and I think I will be able to reuse them (similarly to what
Joseph suggested and I implemented for argp/err/error tests ).
