I've been thinking a bit more about this, and I started wondering, why do we even need to pass `-ffast-math` down?

If all the others are already being passed, shouldn't this flag be redundant?

Finally, we could possibly add instead `&& FpContract != "off"`. Would that be better?

Also, when `-ffast-math` is selected, and `-ffp-contract=on`, we should actually change it to `fast`, no?

+    case options::OPT_ffinite_math_only:
Missing break?
