Not true. The type of float*float is float. gcc does generate inf as the
result of FLT_MAX*FLT_MAX on x86 too if you use -ffloat-store (the
standard does allow the gcc default of using more precision/range than
required by the type of the result - of course the standard allows
pretty much anything for floating point).

Also this of course isn't relevant at all to my other alternative
suggestion (doing the equivalent test with long double).
