[Qemu-ppc] [PATCH] powerpc: use float64 for frsqrte

From: Tristan Gingold
Subject: [Qemu-ppc] [PATCH] powerpc: use float64 for frsqrte
Date: Tue, 3 Jun 2014 11:14:20 +0200

Remove the code that reduce the result to float32 as the frsqrte
instruction is defined to return a double-precision estimate of
the reciprocal square root.

Although reducing the fractional part is harmless (as the estimation
must have at least 12 bits of precision according to the old PEM),
reducing the exponent range is not correct.
