No. Try mainline.
And I think there's an excellent argument against this kind of
for the mainline as well, at least for FP types.
What is the argument? If issue is correctness for corner cases, is
additional gcc flag; besides -ffast-math, which need be checked for?
under these threads:
GCC options and floating point correctness
(a + b) + c should be replaced by a + (b + c)
GCC beaten by ICC in stupid trig test
Well, there's an argument against it, all right, but the view that it's
appears to be a minority one. It's clear that quite a few people find
transformations useful. Those of you who want standard-conforming
don't have to use -ffast-math, after all.
