This commit removes an exported function pair that is currently used
by out of tree modules, while the replacement pair
(kernel_fpu_begin/end) is EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL. So this is making
existing functionality GPL only, which will probably be an issue for
several out of tree modules that use the fpu.

Could kernel_fpu_begin/end be made plain EXPORT_SYMBOL?
