They are not precisely identical, and in fact the change results in
slightly better accuracy wrt the mathematical expression, simply
because sqrtf(q * sqrtf(q)) is not always a correctly rounded float. I
vaguely recall negligible ~ 2/3 ulp differences. The table is
correctly rounded; I tested that while speeding up the tablegen.
Added a small line to this effect in the notes.
