Re: Irix6 long doubles implemented wrong? (27_io/ostream_inserter_arith)

I've been working on a patch that will enable us to switch to 128-bit
long doubles on mips n32 and n64, but I still need a little bit of
polishing and checking (I know that my current patch still doesn't
pass long double arguments in the right registers).  I expect to have
it finished in the next few days.

That said, I'm not sure it would be wise to break the gcc ABI on IRIX
6 by introducing this change.  It's not like long double is the most
widely used type, but still, I'm a bit concerned about changing it.
Opinions?
