Looking into this now.  It looks like most of libm was originally from
FreeBSD, which got their code from Sun.  Just wondering, are there any
licensing concerns to take into consideration when porting fixes from
FreeBSD?  I would assume that the default FreeBSD license applies to
any of the changes made by the FreeBSD project and so the right way to
handle this issue would be to add their copyright header to the file
when bringing in their fixes.  At the very least I imagine the commit
messages should mention the original patch authors and source.  Please
let me know if this sounds good.

Thanks,
Gregory
