Powers with negative bases do not observe the same rules that float_pow/long_pow do when it comes to returning negative results/

Example:

> -2 ** 2
-4

>>> x = -2
>>> y = 2
>>> x ** y
4

>>> -2. ** 2.
-4.0
>>> x = -2.
>>> y = 2.
>>> x ** y
4.0

Tested on 3.8, 3.9 and 3.10, they all have the same bug.
