When using clang with x86_64 CPUs that support AVX, some floating point
transformations may raise exceptions that would not have been raised by
the original code. To avoid this, use the -fp-exception-behavior=maytrap
flag, introduced in clang 10.0.0.
In particular, this fixes a number of test failures with ctanhf(3) and
ctanf(3), when libm is compiled with -mavx. An unexpected FE_INVALID
exception is then raised, because clang emits vdivps instructions to
perform certain divides. (The vdivps instruction operates on multiple
single-precision float operands simultaneously, but the exceptions may
be influenced by unused parts of the XMM registers. In this particular
case, it was calculating 0 / 0, which results in FE_INVALID.)
If -fp-exception-behavior=maytrap is specified however, clang uses
vdivss instructions instead, which work on one operand, and should not
raise unexpected exceptions.
