It got a GP fault, because in __switch_to() we were doing unlazy_fpu() and
fxsave generated a DNA fault(which shouldn't happen unless we are hitting the
via padlock instruction issue or something else) and the math_state_restore()
found the task's math state pointer to be 0xf781db3d (EAX in the oops) and while
doing fxrstor we got GP fault, as the fxrstor pointer(EAX) is not 16byte
aligned.

It is interesting to see the EAX value similar to stack pointer. Task's
FP area gets dynamically allocated and as such EAX def looks wrong here.
I also see the config is using 4K stacks. Some config(viafb/squashfs?) causing
some thing wrong with the kernel stack?
