SubjectRe: [PATCH] Lazy FPU handling in ptrace

Famous last words.
The patch is not needed: __switch_to unlazies the fpu state of the
previous thread. ptrace PTRACE_SETFPREGS and PTRACE_SETFPXREGS only
operate on stopped threads, thus it's guaranteed that the fpu state is
stored in the task structure.
