Hi Eric,

Ah, oups.  Correction: math.log10 is supposed to be allowed at
interp-level.  I see that we use it to implement the app-level
math.log10().  If I remember the reasoning correctly, there was no point
in trying not to use log10() at interp-level because back-ends typically
provide this function directly (e.g. C has it in math.h).

So actually it's expected that you get ll_math_log10 in LLVM...

Sorry for the confusion,
