Here's the fix that adds support for VAX NaN (and works around
PR104865 which I discovered while trying to make this work).
Tested x86_64-linux, and slightly tested on vax-dec-netbsdelf again.
Pushed to trunk.

libstdc++: Fix std::strong_order to handle NaN on VAX
I mistakenly believed that VAX floats do not support NaN, but with GCC
__builtin_isnan(__builtin_nan("")) is true. That means my previous
change to <compare> is wrong, because it fails to handle NaN.
When std::numeric_limits<floating-point-type>::is_iec559 is false, as on
VAX, the standard only requires an ordering that is consistent with the
ordering observed by comparison operators. With this change the ordering
is -NaN < numbers < +NaN, and there is no support for different NaN bit
patterns (as I'm not even sure if GCC supports any for VAX).
