       Hi,

I notice large errors for some long double functions (on x86_64) with
musl-1.2.1:

expm1l  0x2.c516edaf5e96a33cp+12l 9700.65
lgammal -0x2.74ff92c01f0d82acp+0l 9.08e+19
sinhl   0x2.c516edaf5e96a33cp+12l 9700.65
tgammal -0x2.8d19fd20f3aa62cp+4l 3.69e+19
powl    0xd.64229ca81fffep+16368l,-0x1.b9b6d40000000002p-48l 532.341

The lgammal/tgammal errors are not surprising, but those for expm1l and sinhl
are, and the fact that the input/error are the same for expm1l and sinhl
suggest that one function is using the other one, and maybe that latter one
only provides double precision accuracy.

For powl also it is surprising, since other libraries typically yield
errors < 1 ulp.

Best regards,
Paul
