It is difficult to say.. Status codes like BSUN, SNAN, OPERR, INEX2 are
most likely impossible to emulate with native FPU. N, Z, I and NAN
should work correctly. Denormal/unnormal behavior is guaranteed to be

Do you know any programs that work incorrectly?

btw, FCMP is not correct in all situations, its condition codes was
wrongly assumed to be identical to FSUB but it isn't true. Will be fixed
