Should we do this microoptimization in addition, to save us the
activation when the kernel thread here:

taskA -> kernel thread -> taskA

doesn't call kernel_fpu_begin() and thus fpu_fpregs_owner_ctx remains
the same?

It would be a bit more correct as it won't invoke the
trace_x86_fpu_regs_activated() TP in case the FPU context is the same.
