Quadruple precision float data type is not properly supported

Description (last modified by balaji)
With MPICH2 3.0rc1 and GCC 4.7.2, there seems to be a problem with quadruple precision real numbers, which are supported by the compiler x86.
MPI_Type_create_f90_real with a chosen precision of 33 will complain about wrong exponent, regardless of its value.
On the other hand, while MPI_REAL16 is available and the reduction operation does not complain, it produces wrong results.
There is a similar problem with OpenMPI, as reported in:
