Yuck!

Is there a fundamental reason why we cannot simply enable irqs and
leave them enabled? Math state restore is not atomic and cannot really
be atomic.

[ A potential worry would be kernel code using vector instructions in
irqs-off regions - but that's totally broken anyway so not a big
worry IMO, we might even want to warn about it. ]

But I might be missing something?

Thanks,

Ingo
