Yes; unfortunately, we changed things enough that updating from upstream became impractical. At some point we should take a look at changes made to the upstream dtoa.c since our adoption of it, and figure out whether any of those changes need to be applied to our copy. That's not going to be an easy task. It would be easier if there were upstream testcases (and regression tests in particular), but as far as I'm aware there aren't any.
