this is ok, but note that

riscv fmax is ieee-754-2018 maximumNumber(x,y)
iso c fmax (with ts 18661) is ieee-754-2008 maxNum(x,y)

and )

they only differ in snan handling, current iso c (and musl)
does not care about signaling nans, but that might change.
(glibc cares and gcc has flags to make it care.)

musl is moving away from asm to c code with gcc style inline
asm wherever possible (the drawback is the dependency on gcc
asm syntax and constraints, the benefit is that pcs and
prologue/epilogue are handled by the compiler so all sorts of
instrumentations like debug info, -fstack-protector-all, etc
just work).

so i'd prefer to convert all these asm to c code.
(can be done after the port goes in)
