we have libm and more, just extracting list of function from the
trigonometric toolbox give us this:
for info, our sin/cos is like 9 cycles/value (~40 cycles per vector of
float) with a 1-2 ulp of precision.
we also have a degraded fast sin/cos that only works on the
trigonometric circle and yields 2.7 cycles/values.
Other speed up are roughly the same.
and here is our complete toolbox list so far :
