    Prepare vfscanf to use __strtof128_internal
    On powerpc64le, long double can currently take two formats: the same as
    double (-mlong-double-64) or IBM Extended Precision (default with
    -mlong-double-128 or explicitly with -mabi=ibmlongdouble).  The internal
    implementation of scanf-like functions is aware of these possibilites
    and, based on the format in use, properly calls __strtold_internal or
    __strtod_internal, saving the return to a variable of type double or
    long double.
    When library support for TS 18661-3 was added to glibc, a new function,
    __strtof128_internal, was added to enable reading of floating-point
    values with IEEE binary128 format into the _Float128 type.  Now that
    powerpc64le is getting support for its third long double format, and
    taking into account that this format is the same as the format of
    _Float128, this patch extends __vfscanf_internal and __vfwscanf_internal
    to call __strtof128_internal or __wcstof128_internal when appropriate.
    The result gets saved into a variable of _Float128 type.
    Tested for powerpc64le.
