Yes, i got it working using APFloat::convert. I need host float to 
output to my backend which is similar
to the c-backend, but generates if/else instead of goto. I do not use 
APFloat::toString since it can
generate "1" for 1.0 which is not useful for me since I append "f" for 
float and "1f" is not a valid float.
