There is nothing to be signed, only the compiler front-end itself has
such a process in place.

The asm syntax is specific to gdc, and there's not presently a policy
in place to upstream them (each module that contains deviations is
appropriately marked at the top of the file) .  Ideally asm bits
should be in separate modules, then it would just be a case of
swapping upstreams for our own.

The FloatingPointControl struct is more closely related to
fpu-control.h.  And no, you can't just include C headers from the D
compiler. that would make quite a lot of things simpler if it did.
