This may not be suitable for all targets (for example PNaCl), so the attached patch adds a target hook that CodeGen queries. The target can state its preference for having or not having the intrinsic generated. Non-PNaCl behavior remains unchanged; PNaCl-specific test added.

Isn't a more straightforward and less invasive approach to just invoke the compiler with -fno-builtin=pow or something along those lines?
