Regarding the `ElementStructureTest`, it prints the API elements (including compile-time constants) computes hash for the printed API and compares it with an expected hash. doubles and floats are printed using String.valueOf, and it apparently changed for `Float.MIN_NORMAL` from `1.17549435E-38` to `1.1754944E-38` (I assume that is intentional). So regarding `ElementStructureTest.java` we can just update it. How about this?
