Re: [LTO][PATCH] Fix long double precision problem


Would that easier and less error prone if we just emit the precision?
I looked at the i386 and ia64 backend and found float types with
precisions 32, 64, 80, 82 and 128. I am not sure if there is an easy
way to do the search in an architecture-indepedent manner?
