Description:
------------
Trivial tests for functions like gettype, floatval, boolval, is_bool, etc, aren't being covered in GCOV: http://gcov.php.net/PHP_HEAD/lcov_html/ext/standard/type.c.gcov.php

I've tested locally the new LCOV version, 1.13 (http://ltp.sourceforge.net/coverage/lcov.php), but it didn't help us.


Something to start with: in PHP 7.1 we weren't using macros for gettype (http://gcov.php.net/PHP_7_1/lcov_html/ext/standard/type.c.gcov.php), for example, and after we started on 7.2 (http://gcov.php.net/PHP_7_2/lcov_html/ext/standard/type.c.gcov.php), we've lost those lines.

The reason is that these functions have custom VM handlers, so in most cases (and in particular the ones being tested), the actual functions are never hit.

I suggest to add a respective comment to these functions.
