Subject: RE: Patch for cacosh

Here's a revised version that used "int" instead of "_Bool" and signbit().  You were correct that -0 failed.

I'm not sure how to do this by adjusting the input to cacos, so I left that alone.

Thanks for considering taking this patch.   Most of the rest of the failures in the Fortran portion of the gcc validation suite are due to lack of quad math support which I know is something you want to tackle, but is still a ways off.

I think this fails to give the desired result for negative zero.
Should probably be signbit(cimag(z)) or similar.

If there's a way to adjust the input to cacos to avoid having to patch up after it returns based on a flag saved before the call, that would make it more efficient I think (no need to spill/reload), but it's not a big deal if not.

Also, as a style matter, musl codebase generally doesn't use _Bool; rather just int for flags/boolean values.
