Taking a look at the patch, I see you're using the single -> half conversion routine from NumPy. This has the double rounding problem when converting double -> float -> half, so it would be better to use the double -> half routine. I implemented it with 64-bit unsigned ints, so if there are platforms not supporting 64-bit ints, something else such as using the 32-bit routine will have to be done there.
