I have tried to retain the old order of checking. While when I see
MultiplyAddDP(x,y,z) in ISA, following is the order:

    * If x, y or z is an SNaN, vxsnan_flag is set to 1.
    * If x is a Zero and y, is an Infinity or x is an Infinity and y is
      an Zero, vximz_flag is set to 1.
    * If the product of x and y is an Infinity and z is an Infinity of
      the opposite sign, vxisi_flag is set to 1.

In that case, I need to get rid of nested if-else and make each of them
independent checks.

Yes, with the above logic yes.

MultiplyAddDP does not eliminate QNaN. But then, there is detailed spec
on what should be returned in various cases(Page 469 ISA 3.0)
