[APFloat] Overload comparison operators

Authored by foad on Feb 27 2020, 3:53 AM.



These implement the usual IEEE-style floating point comparison
semantics, e.g. +0.0 == -0.0 and all operators except != return false
if either argument is NaN.

This should probably be as before, with separate tests for the full range of operators

I like this change!
However, I think (as @arsenm) that the tests shouldn't be changed, but add separate new ones for the newly overloaded operators.

Add unit tests instead of changing existing tests.

Generally it LGTM.
But this change may be split into 2 as well (like the neg change).

I know that some times you see patches that change and add a lot of code (in the same patch), while in other cases they split into smaller ones. Both approaches are valid, but I think the better one is to split (if possible); especially in cases (like this) that change apply to files, from separate projects/modules, outside the one in which the new API is added.

So, I suggest split it into 2, where one adds the new operators and tests; and the other changes the compares in the different locations.

Split changes to callers out into a separate patch.
