      Port of SBCL's float-accuracy compilation policy. Intended to make · 571091c7

      double-float-epsilon actually be epsilon on x86.  No effect on other
      ports.
      
      The default precision is now 53-bit (double-float) instead of 64-bit
      (80-bit floats).  However, to preserve C expectations, all calls to C
      have the precision set to 64-bit.  This slows down calls to C, but we
      try to make syscalls and such fast by not changing precision for the
      call.
      
      By default ext:float-accuracy is 3.
      
      Use boot7.lisp to bootstrap.
