fix i386 fegetround and make fesetround faster

Note that the new fesetround has slightly different semantics:

Storing the floating-point environment with fnstenv makes the
next fldenv (or fldcw) "non-signaling", so unmasked and pending
exceptions does not invoke the exception handler.
(These are rare since exceptions are handled immediately and by
default all exceptions are masked anyway. But if one manually
unmasks an exception in the control word then either sets the
corresponding exception flag in the status word or the execution
of an exception raising floating-point operation gets interrupted
then it may happen).
So the old implementation did not trap in some rare cases
where the new implementation traps.

However POSIX does not specify anything like the x87 exception
handling traps and the fnstenv/fldenv pair is significantly slower
than the fnstcw/fldcw pair (new code is about 5x faster here and
it's dominated by the function call overhead).

first commit of the new libm!

thanks to the hard work of Szabolcs Nagy (nsz), identifying the best
(from correctness and license standpoint) implementations from freebsd
and openbsd and cleaning them up! musl should now fully support c99
float and long double math functions, and has near-complete complex
math support. tgmath should also work (fully on gcc-compatible
compilers, and mostly on any c99 compiler).

based largely on commit 0376d44a890fea261506f1fc63833e7a686dca19 from
nsz's libm git repo, with some additions (dummy versions of a few
missing long double complex functions, etc.) by me.

various cleanups still need to be made, including re-adding (if
they're correct) some asm functions that were dropped.

fix nan/infinity macros in math.h, etc.

the previous version not only failed to work in c++, but also failed
to produce constant expressions, making the macros useless as
initializers for objects of static storage duration.

gcc 3.3 and later have builtins for these, which sadly seem to be the
most "portable" solution. the alternative definitions produce
exceptions (for NAN) and compiler warnings (for INFINITY) on newer
versions of gcc.
