Thanks, Yah I saw the mail today. The path is pushed, I am also waiting for
regenerated file, Or else will have pull the current update and regenerae
the files using 'autoreconf -fvi'.

Yes, and Gedare has verified the code for now, but its execution needs to be
verified once newlib has the update.

There are two approach I found:

   1. I saw in NetBSD, they have one general 'fenv.h' which is present in
   their include directory (This contains function prototypes). And one
   'fenv.h' is present in evry architecture specific folders(They contain
   architecture specific macros). We can implement it in similar way. When
   they are compiled, the 'include/fenv.h' and '<architecture>/fenv.h' gets
   combined i guess.
   2. Or we can have only architecture specific headers which contain
   function prototypes and macros in one single file for every architecture.
