Subject[PATCH] MIPS: prctl: Disallow FRE without FR with PR_SET_FP_MODE requests
Having PR_FP_MODE_FRE (i.e. Config5.FRE) set without PR_FP_MODE_FR (i.e. 
Status.FR) is not supported as the lone purpose of Config5.FRE is to
emulate Status.FR=0 handling on FPU hardware that has Status.FR=1
hardwired[1][2]. Also we do not handle this case elsewhere, and assume
throughout our code that TIF_HYBRID_FPREGS and TIF_32BIT_FPREGS cannot
be set both at once for a task, leading to inconsistent behaviour if
this does happen.

Return unsuccessfully then from prctl(2) PR_SET_FP_MODE calls requesting
PR_FP_MODE_FRE to be set with PR_FP_MODE_FR clear. This corresponds to
modes allowed by `mips_set_personality_fp'.
