Subject[PATCH] Lazy FPU handling in ptrace

While working on some x86-64 ptrace problems I noticed that i386
has bugs in this area too.

Before doing PTRACE_SETFPREGS or PTRACE_SETFPXREGS you need to do
an unlazy_fpu(), otherwise there is no guarantee that the changed
state will be picked up.

Patch for 2.4, but 2.5 seems to have it too.

(untested, but obviously correct ;-)
