You're mixing up 2 different things:
* If you want to use __float128 "as if" it were no different to
float/double etc, then include boost/math/cstdfloat.hpp
* If you want a 128-bit floating point type which hides the underlying
implementation then use boost/multiprecision/float128.hpp.
Note that these are completely different approaches to the same problem,
and are completely different types.
Also note that strictly speaking, boost/math/cstdfloat.hpp is NOT C++
conformant, as it adds function overloads directly to namespace std.
