I will update the commit message with your suggestion.

Sure, I will do it in the next version.

In the next patch, fpsimd_save_and_flush_cpu_state() will also call
{get, put}_cpu_fpsimd_context(). So we avoid to expose the two new
functions outside of the file.

I could introduce a double-underscore version of this function if you
think it is worth it.

Sure.

Thank you for the review!
