Subject[PATCH 3/4] x86/fpu: use restore_init_xstate() instead of math_state_restore() on kthread exec
Change flush_thread() to do user_fpu_begin() + restore_init_xstate()
and avoid math_state_restore().

Note: "TODO: cleanup this horror" is still valid. We do not need
init_fpu() at all, we only need fpu_alloc() + memset(0). But this needs
other changes, in particular user_fpu_begin() should set used_math().
