commit 3c47c83a9730c20e602694505b9278c25637b0d0
Author: Carlos O'Donell <>

    Ensure isinff, isinfl, isnanf, and isnanl are defined (Bug 19439)
    In ICO C++11 mode ensure that isinff, isinfl, isnanf, and isnanl
    are defined.  These functions were accidentally removed from the
    header as part of commit d9b965fa56350d6eea9f7f438a0714c7ffbb183f,
    but being GNU extensions, they should have been left in place.
