Subject: 32-bit double and long double

Hi,

We're using Musl on a platform where both float, double, and long double
are in IEEE-754 binary32 format, and I'm wondering if a patch that lifts
some of the assumptions made regarding widths of floating-point types
would be accepted.

Here is the relevant excerpt from the documentation:

> Floating-point formats are assumed to be IEEE-754 binary32 format for
> float and IEEE-754 binary64 for double.
>
> Supported long double formats: IEEE-754 binary64 (ld64) and x86 80 bit
> extended precision format (ld80) are fully supported and there is
> partial support for IEEE-754 binary128 (ld128).
