r82080: Whitespace fixes.
r82081: In strtod, simplify the computation of the initial approximation.
r82082: Fix typo introduced in r82025 (I think); this was preventing
a shortcut from being taken.
r82087: Simplify the ratio function. The previous ratio function (actually, b2d), aborted if the numerator was zero, and the current code ends up requiring special cases for zero as a result of this. That restriction is now removed, which will allow further simplifications (to come) in strtod.
