Inspired by a selftest failure of sqlite3, I tried to
understand how "long double" math is supposed to work
if the FPU is set to 53-bit rounding.
My findings are posted as PR port-i386/36770 and a reply.

Before I take further steps (like the gcc configuration
change mentioned there) I'd like to get a second opinion.

Could someone understanding the matter have a look at
that PR and tell whether I'm correct?

thanks & best regards
