commit 2506109403de69bd454de27835d42e6eb6ec3abc

    Set/restore rounding mode only when needed
    
    The most common use case of math functions is with default rounding
    mode, i.e. rounding to nearest.  Setting and restoring rounding mode
    is an unnecessary overhead for this, so I've added support for a
    context, which does the set/restore only if the FP status needs a
    change.  The code is written such that only x86 uses these.  Other
    architectures should be unaffected by it, but would definitely benefit
    if the set/restore has as much overhead relative to the rest of the
    code, as the x86 bits do.
    
    Here's a summary of the performance improvement due to these
    improvements; I've only mentioned functions that use the set/restore
    and have benchmark inputs for x86_64:
    
    Before:
    
    cos(): ITERS:4.69335e+08: TOTAL:28884.6Mcy, MAX:4080.28cy, MIN:57.562cy, 16248.6 calls/Mcy
    exp(): ITERS:4.47604e+08: TOTAL:28796.2Mcy, MAX:207.721cy, MIN:62.385cy, 15543.9 calls/Mcy
    pow(): ITERS:1.63485e+08: TOTAL:28879.9Mcy, MAX:362.255cy, MIN:172.469cy, 5660.86 calls/Mcy
    sin(): ITERS:3.89578e+08: TOTAL:28900Mcy, MAX:704.859cy, MIN:47.583cy, 13480.2 calls/Mcy
    tan(): ITERS:7.0971e+07: TOTAL:28902.2Mcy, MAX:1357.79cy, MIN:388.58cy, 2455.55 calls/Mcy
    
    After:
    
    cos(): ITERS:6.0014e+08: TOTAL:28875.9Mcy, MAX:364.283cy, MIN:45.716cy, 20783.4 calls/Mcy
    exp(): ITERS:5.48578e+08: TOTAL:28764.9Mcy, MAX:191.617cy, MIN:51.011cy, 19071.1 calls/Mcy
    pow(): ITERS:1.70013e+08: TOTAL:28873.6Mcy, MAX:689.522cy, MIN:163.989cy, 5888.18 calls/Mcy
    sin(): ITERS:4.64079e+08: TOTAL:28891.5Mcy, MAX:6959.3cy, MIN:36.189cy, 16062.8 calls/Mcy
    tan(): ITERS:7.2354e+07: TOTAL:28898.9Mcy, MAX:1295.57cy, MIN:380.698cy, 2503.7 calls/Mcy
    
    So the improvements are:
    
    cos: 27.9089%
    exp: 22.6919%
    pow: 4.01564%
    sin: 19.1585%
    tan: 1.96086%
    
    The downside of the change is that it will have an adverse performance
    impact on non-default rounding modes, but I think the tradeoff is
    justified.
