Now that I'm digging into this a bit I'm thinking my issue has to
the fix you put in place from back in Aug 2007 (commit
[MATH-EMU]: Fix underflow exception reporting.
2) we ended up rounding back up to normal (this is the case where
we set the exponent to 1 and set the fraction to zero), this
should set inexact too
Another example, "0x0.0000000000001p-1022 / 16.0", should signal
inexact and underflow. The cpu implementations and ieee1754
literature is very clear about this. This is case #2 above.
I'm not clear from your commit comment on what actual number
I haven't been able to look closely at this yet but I think I
happened to stumble over the test case that lead me to that
changeset you are referencing here.
Have you had a chance to look at this?
