           Summary: floating-point operations have side effects

Floating-point instructions, such as add, sub, mul, and div, as well as math
library functions in -fno-math-errno mode, are considered to have no side
effects in LLVM.  This is incorrect; they may set floating-point exception
flags, and they may trap if the processor is configured to trap on
floating-point exceptions.

As a consequence of this, these side effects may be reordered or eliminated by
the optimizer and codegen.
