Subject[PATCH stable 3.10, 3.12, 3.14] MIPS: Export FP functions used by lose_fpu(1) for KVM
[ Upstream commit 3ce465e04bfd8de9956d515d6e9587faac3375dc ]

Export the _save_fp asm function used by the lose_fpu(1) macro to GPL
modules so that KVM can make use of it when it is built as a module.

This fixes the following build error when CONFIG_KVM=m due to commit
f798217dfd03 ("KVM: MIPS: Don't leak FPU/DSP to guest"):

ERROR: "_save_fp" [arch/mips/kvm/kvm.ko] undefined!

[ Only export when CPU_R4K_FPU=y prior to v3.16,
so as not to break the Octeon build which excludes FPU support. KVM
depends on MIPS32r2 anyway.]

Appologies for the previous cavium_octeon_defconfig link breakage.
Octeon has the symbol since 3.16, but not before. This backport should
do the trick for stable 3.10, 3.12, and 3.14. Build tested with
cavium_octeon_defconfig and malta_kvm_defconfig on those stable
