When I was working on the original patch I dug through history - a couple were added (pow and sqrt) I think, and sqrt was then backed off due to some problems. Even with pow there are other constrains such as errno (the builtin is not generated when we want errno, naturally, even without -fno-builtins). Perhaps I can make the target hook more generic - controlling all math libraries (the BIfoo ones, not BI__builtin_foo) instead of just pow?

I really don't want this to be an IR-gen target hook, but adding a cc1-level ability to disable builtin treatment for math functions makes sense to me, or you can just add frontend support for -fno-builtin-<FUNC>.
