The the FloatConsts and DoubleConsts classes, while moved to an internal
package recently (JDK-8145990), contain constants now available via the
public API. All such uses of the redundant values should be removed as
well as the redundant constants themselves.
A quick note on the 2d changes, several constants (and a copy from a
package-private method from java.lang) were used to initialize a double
value POWER_2_TO_32; this can be accomplished more directly using a
hexadecimal floating-point literal.
