OpenBSD reduces to the range [-pi/4,pi/4]:

   https://github.com/openbsd/src/blob/master/lib/libm/src/s_tan.c


According to the man page on i386:

   http://man.openbsd.org/FreeBSD-11.0/math.3

"Argument reduction is not performed accurately for huge arguments, resulting in large errors for such arguments to cos(), sin(), and tan()."


pi/2 is not exactly "huge", but it would be interesting if this
occurred on i386.
