Subject[PATCH 02/24] x86/fpu: Remove fpu__restore()
Date
There are no users of fpu__restore() so it is time to remove it.
The comment regarding fpu__restore() and TS bit is stale since commit
b3b0870ef3ffe ("i387: do not preload FPU state at task switch time")
and has no meaning since.

Note, some FPU functions are already explicitly preempt safe. For example,
kernel_fpu_begin and kernel_fpu_end will disable and enable preemption.
-However, fpu__restore() must be called with preemption disabled.


RULE #3: Lock acquire and release must be performed by same task
