Subject[RFC PATCH v1 0/2] Introduce XSAVE/XRSTOR self-test
The XSAVE feature set supports the saving and restoring of state components
such as FPU, which is used for process context switching.
In order to ensure that XSAVE works correctly, add XSAVE basic test for
XSAVE architecture functionality.

This patch set tests XSAVE/XRSTOR instructions on x86 platforms and verify if
the XSAVE/XRSTOR works correctly during signal handling.

Cases such as signal handling, process creation, other xstate(except FPU)
tests for XSAVE check, etc. will be added to the Linux kernel self-test.
If appropriate, it is even planned to add the [1] mentioned XSAVE issues
reproduce and some XSAVE anomaly tests to the kernel self-test.
