glibc is build with -fmerge-all-constants, so constants should already be
shared at link time; making constants hidden would be relevant only for
arrays, not for individual floating-point numbers (and if the individual
constants aren't put in appropriate sections with link-time merging, it's
probably because not doing so is more efficient on a particular
