This sentence hurts my brain.

"If TIF_LOAD_FPU is set the registers are ... not loaded"

I think that means that something could use some better naming.

Should TIF_LOAD_FPU be TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD, perhaps?

This needs commenting, please.

If we do not need to load the FPU at return to userspace, it means the
state is in the the registers, not the buffer. So, update the buffer to
match the registers.

Do we really need the __fpregs_changes_*() abstraction for this single
call site?
