Description

stats(3): Improve t-digest merging of samples which result in mu adjustment underflow.

Allow the calculation of the mu adjustment factor to underflow instead of
rejecting the VOI sample from the digest and logging an error. This trades off
some (currently unquantified) additional centroid error in exchange for better
fidelity of the distribution's density, which is the right trade off at the
moment until follow up work to better handle and track accumulated error can be
undertaken.
