I'm not clear what the observed issues you are fixing are. Is this patch to avoid running into libgcc generating spurious overflows for the case you mention, or is it intended to fix wrong results? > + if (!isfinite (x) && !isfinite (y) && isfinite(z)) > + /* Compute the result as x * y to avoid an overflow. */ > + return x * y; Why wouldn't this be needed if just one of x and y is not finite? If x * y + z generates a spurious overflow in some cases where x * y is infinite, I'd expect that to apply equally to the case where the infinity comes from (Inf * finite), not just from (Inf * Inf).

We still see a failures (see bug 23272). How can we move this forward? Thanks, Florian

How can we move this forward? Do you mean bug 23584? That answers the first question about the symptoms (both spurious overflow exceptions and bad results, apparently coming from __gcc_qadd mishandling certain cases involving infinities), but doesn't answer the second question about what happens when the infinite x * y comes from (Inf * finite) (I'd guess the same problem, in which case the proposed patch needs fixing further, but it looks like tests for that case also need adding to libmtestfma.inc).

Thanks. I have to admit this is a bit over my head. Tulio, can you take care of this, or should someone else pick this up? Thanks, Florian

I still have to confirm Joseph's points and will get back to you. I still need more time, though.  Tulio Magno

This solution is mainly based on Joseph's fix at commit ca121b117f2c9c97a4c121334481a96c94fef3a0. It has extra differences because:  part of the nonfinite arguments were already being treated;  when x and y are +Inf and z if finite, an overflow can be generated.
