I'm thinking of ots_cvtqux.c, ots_cvtqx.c and ots_cvttx.c defining 
FP_ROUNDMODE to FP_RND_ZERO - those being equivalent to floatunditf.c, 
floatditf.c and extenddftf2.c, the first two of which define 
FP_NO_EXCEPTIONS (and so don't need FP_DECL_EX or anything else related to 
exceptions).  I think ots_cvtqux.c and ots_cvtqx.c should be able to 
define FP_NO_EXCEPTIONS (and then not need the local FP_ROUNDMODE 
definitions for anything), while the FP_ROUNDMODE definition in 
ots_cvttx.c shouldn't actually be doing anything (none of the macros there 
does any rounding; I haven't checked, but likely the definition dates back 
to when there was a single macro for all floating-point conversions rather 
than separate ones for extensions and truncations).
