[PATCH] RFA C4X just unconditionally sets -ffast-math (nearly)

c4x_override_options is just setting set_fast_math_flags(1), which is supposed
to have the same effect as unconditional use of -ffast-math. This is:

1. Quite surprising to the actual user and thus not polite.
2. Missing the twinkle-winkle dance between -fcx-limited-range and flag_complex_method.
3. Asking for obvious regressions.
4. Adding to the already sufficient "behavioral indeterminism" of the math options.

Is it OK to stop doing this? It's the only architecture doing this after all.
