dtoa.c is now compiled with -fno-string-aliasing (for any clang version, not only clang 4.0) on Python 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7.

It was decided to not touch dtoa.c to not diverge from upstream.

Thanks Dimitry Andric and Mark Dickinson for your reviews and support in this cryptic issue!

Note 1: We consider that Clang 4.0 is wrong, whereas GCC respects the C99 standard for aliasing on unions. But I don't think that it matters much who is wrong or not :-)

Note 2: Python 2.7 already used -fno-strict-aliasing on all .c files because of its design of PyObject structures, fixed in Python 3.
