Looks good to me. Thanks for digging into test-suite failures!

However, it probably wouldn't harm either to add a test case for
powerpc*-*-* (which might also work with hppa-*-*-hpux) for the rounding.
I worry less about the quad-precision (qp) rounding, but I think it would
be useful to test that the single and double precision rounding work. But
as it requires an extra file, one could also check for the 31bit QP as
well. Thus, if you have some spare cycles and agree on the usefulness ...
