The reference to MPC can't be correct. This program does not use MPC.
So far this message has reached the libc-alpha list twice (you don't see
it twice in the archives because it has the same message-id each time).
I've seen this issue before with large messages coming to libc-alpha from
IBM (many duplicate copies of them arrive on the list), as if there is
some problem with IBM's mail server timing out before sourceware accepts
the message, or something like that. Please try to get that mail system
A further refactoring will be needed for testing new types with existing
formats: constant suffixes will need to be added when the header is used,
rather than being included when it is generated, so that the generated
constants for binary128 can be used with either "L" or "f128" (well, "q"
absent GCC support for "f128") suffixes depending on the type
corresponding to that format. Do you intend to do that in a separate
