Ugh. My dislike of modules on my machines strikes again, and
apparently nobody else tested the patches I sent out.

The attached trivial patch fixes it, I bet.

Although I do wonder if we should just make kernel_fpu_begin() be a
real function instead of inlining it. I'm not sure it makes sense to
inline that thing, and it might be better to export that one instead.
