[~mboehm7] I would like to work on this issue. Can you assign it to me.

> Switch log from FastMath to Math

>                 Key: SYSTEMML-1894
>                 URL:
>             Project: SystemML
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>            Reporter: Matthias Boehm
>             Fix For: SystemML 1.0
> Currently, SystemML uses FastMath instead of Math for certain builtin operations. However,
recent experiments with JDK 8 on different platforms have shown that for log this is no longer
beneficial and actually leads to a slowdown of up to 30%.
> For example, on a scenario of 20 iterations of log(X), where X is a 10K x 10K dense matrix,
we obtained the following results:
> {code}
> log w/ FastMath: 85.2s
> log w/ Math: 65.6s
> {code}
> Hence, this task aims to replace FastMath.log with Math.log in all occurrences in SystemML
runtime and code generation framework.
