#1574: 1.5.0b1 umath complex failures on Windows

Comment(by rgommers):

 These things are defined in sec. G of the C99 spec, which starts:
 ''This annex supplements annex F to specify complex arithmetic for
 compatibility with IEC 60559 real floating-point arithmetic. Although
 these specifications have been carefully designed, there is little
 existing practice to validate the design decisions. Therefore, these
 specifications are not normative, but should be viewed more as recommended
 practice. An implementation that defines {{{__STDC_IEC_559_COMPLEX__}}}
 should conform to the specifications in this annex.''

 So it depends. I agree skipping these tests is fine.
