    Fix ldbl-128ibm logbl near powers of 2 (bug 18030).

    The ldbl-128ibm implementation of logbl produces incorrect results
    when the high part of the argument is a power of 2 and the low part a
    nonzero number with the opposite sign (and so the returned exponent
    should be 1 less than that of the high part).  For example, logbl
    (0x1.ffffffffffffffp1L) returns 2 but should return 1.  (This is
    similar to (fixed) bug 16740 for frexpl, and (fixed) bug 18029 for
    ilogbl.)  This patch adds checks for that case.

    Tested for powerpc.

        [BZ #18030]
        * sysdeps/ieee754/ldbl-128ibm/s_logbl.c (__logbl): Adjust exponent
        of power of 2 down when low part has opposite sign.
        * math/ (logb_test_data): Add more tests.
