--- Comment #2 from Chris Lattner <clattner at apple.com> 2011-07-29 16:03:05 CDT ---
Howard asked me to reconsider this bug.  The standard says:

"If FLT_EVAL_METHOD equals 0, float_t and double_t shall be float and double,
respectively; if FLT_EVAL_METHOD equals 1, they shall both be double; if
FLT_EVAL_METHOD equals 2, they shall both be long double; for other values of
FLT_EVAL_METHOD, they are otherwise implementation-defined."

In practice, GCC and Clang implement FLT_EVAL_METHOD in <float.h> by just
forwarding the definition of __FLT_EVAL_METHOD__ (which is builtin) to

GCC does set __FLT_EVAL_METHOD__ to 0 by default and to 2 with -mno-sse:

$ cat t.c
$ gcc -E t.c -std=gnu99 -mno-sse

So I agree that this should be fixed.
