Could it be one of those conditions for which XRSTORS #GPs, like

"If XRSTORS attempts to load MXCSR with an illegal value, a
general-protection exception (#GP) occurs."

for example? I'm looking at the SDM section for XRSTORS.

I mean, math_state_restore() does init_fpu() and down that road we're
allocating an FPU state ... but we did init_fpu() before too, in
eager_fpu_init(). So what changed?

Maybe I'm looking in a totally wrong direction, it is too late here to
stare at FPU code anyway...

Thanks.
