CustomFloat!(2, 6, CustomFloatFlags.nan).max_exp == 2^^5+1 but should be 2^^5.

The bias is 2^^(|6|-1)-1=31. The last -1, because nans are available. I derived
this from how std.numeric defines the bias. (I don't know any external
definition for numbers that do not comply to IEEE.) The maximum exponent is
0b111110=62, because 0b111111 is needed for nan. Therefore the maximum exponent
of 2, that can be represented is 2^(62-31)=2^31. Therefore max_exp should be
