i fixed a couple of math bugs

eg. exp10l had constants trucated to double

there were several functions (scalbn, modf, nextafter)
which should be correctly rounded but the return value
was not stored, so they returned a value with excess
(this can cause bad breakage unless the caller saves
the result)

some __invtrig globals are removed

these should be fixed

there are various other improvements

a major change is that i changed STRICT_ASSIGN to
no longer do the volatile thing
(it's not needed on gcc if either -ffloat-store or
c99 standard excess precision handling is present,
hopefully other compilers are not as broken as gcc)

and i added the c11 CMPLX into complex.h
(ifdefed for c11)
