Implement ecvt, fcvt, gcvt

Peter Limkilde Svendsen requested to merge plimkilde/relibc:cvt into master

Implement POSIX legacy functions ecvt, fcvt and gcvt, see ecvt and fcvt are implemented basically by picking apart the output of Rust's format! macro. gcvt has a simple C implementation taken from musl.

There are quite a few corner cases here, thus the expected output file is pretty large. Turns out this was also a bit of a stress test for printf's floating point handling, which is why the value is not printed in each output line.

gcvt is not part of this MR. It should be trivial to implement in C, but I had some trouble getting it to build (probably just need to understand the cbindgen setup etc.).

Edit: got gcvt to "work", i.e. it is callable but the underlying %.*g formatting does not currently seem to be supported.

Edit 2: Rebased after 57917c0e fixed the %.*g issue, gcvt is now working. printf still does not like infinity, though.
