Both libc and libm export FBSD_1.X versions. For isnanf, both
libc and libm export isnanf at FBSD_1.0, this means that isnanf can
be removed from libm (we do not believe that some binary or library
links against libm but not libc).
For __isnanf, libc exports __isnanf at FBSD_1.0, and libm exports
__isnanf at FBSD_1.2. I suspect that we could export both
__isnanf at FBSD_1.0 and __isnanf at FBSD_1.2 from libc.
Then, isnanf and __isnanf may be removed from libm.
