    Fix strtof ("-nan") returns positive NaN
    strtof ("-nan") returned positive NaN instead of negative NaN.
    strtod ("-nan") and strtold ("-nan") return negative NaN.
    Linux glibc has been fixed
    that strto{f|d|ld} ("-nan") returns negative NaN.
    This commit makes strtof preserves the negative sign bit
    when parsing "-nan" like glibc.
