> In the RLIBM project, we have a similar version range reduction for sinf. We preform two levels of range reduction. The first level of range reduction is exactly similar to the approach here. Second level approximates sinpi(x), with two polynomials sinpi and cospi, similar to the description in Section 2 of our PLDI 2021 paper: https://people.cs.rutgers.edu/~sn349/papers/rlibm32-pldi-2021-preprint.pdf

Yes, the last hex digit is `b`, but it has only 6 hex digits, and hence `-24` instead of `-27`; a full 7 hex digits will make it `-28` instead.
It would be great to be able to reduce the polynomial's degree + exceptional cases. Thanks for letting me know the progress! I'm looking forward to it!
