I think SIGKILL makes more sense unless there's a way the process
could handle the resulting SIGFPE and recover. I'd actually like to
see the lazy allocation of FPU state just removed (the amount of space
saved is tiny relative to the complexity cost and the negative aspects
of unrecoverable late failure) but for now let's just go with this.
