[PATCH] PR middle-end/98420: Don't fold x - x to 0.0 with -frounding-math

This patch addresses PR middle-end/98420, which is inappropriate constant
folding of x - x to 0.0 (in match.pd) when -frounding-math is specified.
Specifically, x - x may be -0.0 with FE_DOWNWARD as the rounding mode.

To summarize, the desired IEEE behaviour, x - x for floating point x,
(1) can't be folded to 0.0 by default, due to the possibility of NaN or Inf
(2) can be folded to 0.0 with -ffinite-math-only
(3) can't be folded to 0.0 with -ffinite-math-only -frounding-math
(4) can be folded with -ffinite-math-only -frounding-math -fno-signed-zeros

Technically, this is a regression from GCC 4.1 (according to godbolt.org)
so hopefully this patch is suitable during stage4.

This patch has been tested on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu with make bootstrap
and make -k check with no new failures.  Ok for mainline?

	PR middle-end/98420
	* match.pd (minus @0 @0): Additional checks for -fno-rounding-math
	(the defaut) or -fno-signed-zeros.

	PR middle-end/98420
	* gcc.dg/pr98420.c: New test case.

Thanks in advance,
