The code is odd and deceiving here. Let's see the whole "copcsr label"
code segment:

copcsr:
if (ieee754_cxtest(IEEE754_INEXACT)) {
MIPS_FPU_EMU_INC_STATS(ieee754_inexact);
rcsr |= FPU_CSR_INE_X | FPU_CSR_INE_S;
}
if (ieee754_cxtest(IEEE754_UNDERFLOW)) {
MIPS_FPU_EMU_INC_STATS(ieee754_underflow);
rcsr |= FPU_CSR_UDF_X | FPU_CSR_UDF_S;
}
if (ieee754_cxtest(IEEE754_OVERFLOW)) {
MIPS_FPU_EMU_INC_STATS(ieee754_overflow);
rcsr |= FPU_CSR_OVF_X | FPU_CSR_OVF_S;
}
if (ieee754_cxtest(IEEE754_INVALID_OPERATION)) {
MIPS_FPU_EMU_INC_STATS(ieee754_invalidop);
rcsr |= FPU_CSR_INV_X | FPU_CSR_INV_S;
}

ctx->fcr31 = (ctx->fcr31 & ~FPU_CSR_ALL_X) | rcsr;
if ((ctx->fcr31 >> 5) & ctx->fcr31 & FPU_CSR_ALL_E) {
/*printk ("SIGFPE: FPU csr = %08x\n",
ctx->fcr31); */
return SIGFPE;
}


Value of rcsr will be dictated by series of invocations to ieee754_cxtest(),
which, in fact, means that exception bits will be copied from fcr31 to rcsr.

Then, fcr31 exception bits are cleared and set to the values they had just
before clearing.

Obviously, this will not do anything in our scenarios.

However, the patch is about correct setting of debugfs stats, and this code
segment correctly does this.

May I suggest that we accept my patch as is, and if anybody for any reason
wants to deal further with related code, this should be done in a separate
fix/patch?

Regards,
Aleksandar
