and the current check did not take this into account. So when the result
was rounded away from zero it could become infinity without setting
errno to ERANGE.
Example: pow(0x1.7ac7cp+5, 23) is 0x1.fffffep+127 + 0.1633ulp
If the result goes above 0x1.fffffep+127 + 0.5ulp then errno is set,
which is fine in nearest rounding mode, but
powf(0x1.7ac7cp+5, 23) is inf in upward rounding mode
powf(-0x1.7ac7cp+5, 23) is -inf in downward rounding mode
and the previous implementation did not set errno in these cases.
The fix tries to avoid affecting the common code path or calling a
function that may introduce a stack frame, so float arithmetics is used
to check the rounding mode and the threshold is selected accordingly.
