Please review the changes for
JDK-8138823: Correct bug in port of fdlibm hypot to Java
The change to java/lang/FdLibm.java is to correct a problem analogous to
one recently corrected in the port of the pow method.
The testing includes a few improvements, including the addition of
FdlibmTranslit.java to host transliteration ports of the fdlibm methods.
That is, Java ports of the code that are as close to the C versions as
possible while still being readable. For the code used for
java.lang.StrictMath, it is desirable for the code to be faster and to
be closer to idiomatic Java.
