Subject[PATCH] [RESEND] add FP exception mode prctl
Linus,

This patch that adds a prctl so that processes can set their
floating-point exception mode on PPC and on PPC64. We need this
because the FP exception mode is controlled by bits in the machine
state register, which can only be accessed by the kernel, and because
the exception mode setting interacts with the lazy FPU save/restore
that the kernel does.

Would you mind applying this to your tree?

Thanks,
Paul.
