Subject[PATCH] 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 potentially 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?
