I think this should do the following:

fpregs_lock();
if (!test_thread_flag(TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD)) {
pagefault_disable();
ret = copy_fpu_to_user(...);
pagefault_enable();
if (!res)
return 0;
copy_fpregs_to_fpstate(fpu);
}
fpregs_unlock();

The point is that in most cases the direct store from the FPU registers to
user space will succeed simply because the stack is accessible and you only
do the store in kernel memory and copy when that fails.

Thanks,

tglx
