#2077: Incorrect finfo from PPC longdouble

Comment(by mwiebe):

 I seem to recall that the finfo code is using an algorithm that
 automatically detects these parameters by manipulating values of the given
 dtype. I guess either there's something wrong with the algorithm, or the
 long double on that platform is extremely non-conformant.
