On a platform that raises a floating point exception when trying
to convert a floating point number that is larger than INT_MAX +
1 to an integer type. Linux typically doesn't have any floating
point exceptions enabled by default does it? Anyway, I think trying
to find out exactly which platforms it crashes on is a sideshow,
the fact is that the converting a float f to an int is undefined
when f is >= INT_MAX + 1.
