I think you mean acosl, asinl, ...

These were implemented quite well in 2012-2013, but not quite finished,
and not committed.  Only the float and double version were committed.
The raw versions are still available in
https://people.freebsd.org/~stephen/catrig*.c.  These have rotted and
require some editing.  Compare with the committed parts to see most
of the necessary editing.

They cannot be implemented by aliasing (except on arches which don't
have real long doubles).  Bad versions can be implemented using wrappers.
Bad versions are worse than none IMO.

It would be hard to do better than the 2012-2013 implementation.
