NOT-MORE-CONTAGIOUS broken for double-double-floats

Reported by: rtoy Owned by: somebody

Here is an example of the brokenness:

(defun foo (x)
  (declare (type double-float x))
  (expt x 2w0))

(compile 'foo)

(foo 2d0)

Invalid number of arguments: 1
   [Condition of type KERNEL:SIMPLE-PROGRAM-ERROR]

This is a bug in NOT-MORE-CONTAGIOUS returning the wrong value. The power should cause result of EXPT to be a double-double-float, but the the deftransform just converts the call to a multiplication of two double-floats. This mismatch of the actual type and the derived type confuses the compiler and causes the weird error.

Fix ticket:71

The reader conditionals in NOT-MORE-CONTAGIOUS were incorrrectly handling the case when the second type was a double-float. It was always returning T in that case, but this is wrong if the first type is a double-double-float.
