    Improve lgammaf range for very small cases
    The original cut for small arguments at |x|<2**-70 (copied from the
    double version) produces that when computing nadj we get a subnormal
    number for t*x and thus, the division of pi/subnormal will be INF and
    the logarithm of it too, which is wrong as a result for lgammaf in this
    The proposed new limit seems to be safe and has been tested to
    produce accurate results.
