+  <li>The behavior when compiling with <code>-fexcess-precision=standard</code>
+      (e.g., implied by <code>-std=c99</code>) on s390(x) targets can now be
+      controlled at configure time with the flag
+      <code>--enable-s390-excess-float-precision</code>. When enabled, gcc will
+      maintain previous behavior and evaluate float expressions in double
+      precision, which aligns with the definition of <code>float_t</code> as
+      <code>double</code>. With the flag disabled, gcc will always evaluate
+      float expressions in single precision. In native builds, gcc will by
+      default match the definition of <code>float_t</code> in the installed
+      glibc.
+  </li>
