You need
./cc1 -quiet t.c -O -fassociative-math -fno-trapping-math -fno-signed-zeros
-frounding-math

We do, this is in block with:
/* We can't reassociate floating-point unless -fassociative-math
or fixed-point plus or minus because of saturation to +-Inf. */
(if ((!FLOAT_TYPE_P (type) || flag_associative_math)
&& !FIXED_POINT_TYPE_P (type))
But that doesn't mean you can't request associative math and rounding math
at the same time.
