Subject[PATCH 0/1] x86/fpu: math_state_restore() should not blindly disable irqs
Sorry if you see this message twice, but it seems that today my messages
go to /dev/null sometimes...

I knew about this problem, but I didn't realize that restore_sigcontext()
can call a sleeping function after math_state_restore(). So I was going
to fix this later, because we need a lot more cleanups in these paths.

But it turns out, it is trivial to trigger the "BUG: sleeping function
called from invalid context" warning, see the test-case I sent to Dave.

To avoid the confusion, this has nothing to do with the problems we
discuss in other threads, or with the recent changes in tip/x86/fpu.

The patch is horrible, yes. But simple, and math_state_restore/init_fpu
are already horrible and need the cleanups. Hopefully I'll send them "soon".
