x86-64: Compile branred.c with -mprefer-vector-width=128 [BZ #24603]

When compiled with -O3 and AVX, GCC 8 and 9 optimize some loops in
sysdeps/ieee754/dbl-64/branred.c with 256-bit vector instructions,
which leads to store forward stall:

There is no easy fix in compiler. This patch limits vector width to
128 bits to work around this issue. It improves performance of sin
and cos by more than 40% on Skylake compiled with -O3 -march=skylake.

Tested with GCC 7/8/9 on x86-64.

 [BZ #24603]
 * sysdeps/x86_64/ Check if -mprefer-vector-width=128
 * sysdeps/x86_64/configure: Regenerated.
 * sysdeps/x86_64/fpu/Makefile (CFLAGS-branred.c): New. Set
 to -mprefer-vector-width=128 if supported.

Linux: Use in-tree copy of SO_ constants for !__USE_MISC [BZ #24532]

The kernel changes for a 64-bit time_t on 32-bit architectures
resulted in <asm/socket.h> indirectly including <linux/posix_types.h>.
The latter is not namespace-clean for the POSIX version of

This issue has persisted across several Linux releases, so this commit
creates our own copy of the SO_* definitions for !__USE_MISC mode.

The new test socket/tst-socket-consts ensures that the copy is
consistent with the kernel definitions (which vary across
architectures). The test is tricky to get right because CPPFLAGS
includes include/libc-symbols.h, which in turn defines _GNU_SOURCE

Tested with I verified that a discrepancy in
the definitions actually results in a failure of the
socket/tst-socket-consts test.

test-container: Install with $(all-subdirs) [BZ #24794]

Whenever a sub-make is created, it inherits the variable subdirs from its
parent. This is also true when make check is called with a restricted
list of subdirs. In this scenario, make install is executed "partially"
and testroot.pristine ends up with an incomplete installation.

 [BZ #24794]
 * Makefile (testroot.pristine/install.stamp): Pass
 subdirs='$(all-subdirs)' to make install.

test-container: Avoid copying unintended system libraries

Some DSOs are distributed in hardware capability directories, e.g.
Whenever the processor is able to use one of these hardware-enabled
DSOs, testroot.pristine ends up with copies of glibc-provided libraries
from the system because it can't overwrite or remove them.

This patch avoids the unintended copies by executing with the same
arguments passed to each glibc test.

 * Makefile (testroot.pristine/install.stamp): Execute with
 the same arguments used in all tests.
