This change isn't "giving up on correctness" (unless there are bugs
with -fno-math-errno). Code that breaks was already not entirely
portable in this regard.

It may be "giving up on compatibility" though. Clang is a new
compiler, and it's a good time to get things like this right, where
feasible. However, I'll leave it up to the clang developers to
decide what to do.
