If I pass -fexcess-precision=standard or -mfpmath=sse (no need for -msse2 in
this case), the test passes.

However, something has evidently changed (regressed) in the inliner: 'volatile
double', put in sufficiently many places, has the same effect as
-fexcess-precision=standard (before gcc 7 and in gcc 7). What has changed, is
that if I have 'volatile double' only in the signature of the 'equalfn'
function that gets inlined, since gcc 7 this information that the values should
be passed as IEEE doubles (discarding excess precision) gets lost.
