We set errno=0 in __gnu_cxx::__stoa in order to reliably detect when
it gets set to ERANGE. This restores the previous value when the
conversion is successful.

Tested powerpc64le-linux, committed to trunk.

    Leave errno unchanged by successful std::stoi etc

    	* include/ext/string_conversions.h (__stoa): Save and restore errno.
    	* testsuite/21_strings/basic_string/numeric_conversions/char/errno.cc:
    	New.

That looks wrong to me, you only restore errno if you don't throw :(.
If you throw, then errno might remain 0, which is IMHO undesirable.

My thinking was that a failed conversion that throws an exception
should be allowed to modify errno, and that the second case sets it to
ERANGE sometimes anyway.

But I suppose it would be better to consistently set it to non-zero
when an exception is thrown, or consistently restore the original
value in all cases.

So, I'd say you want to restore it earlier, right after __convf, and
immediately before that copy the current errno to some other temporary
for the use in the condition?  Or restore errno = __saved_errno;
in all the 3 spots instead of just one.

Or in a destructor so it happens however we exit the function, like
this ...
