How am I to understand that "fpregs_changes" thing? That FPU registers
changes will begin and end respectively?

I probably would call them fpregs_lock and fpregs_unlock even if
it isn't doing any locking to denote that FPU regs are locked and
inaccessible inside the region.

And why the "__" prefix? Is there a counterpart without the "__" coming?

And that second part of a cleanup looks strange in this patch. Why isn't
it in a separate patch or how is it related to the addition of the
helpers?

Thx.
