Can we make this ELF_CORE_VECREG_TYPE or something that is so coupled
to the x86 specific name?

You've only fixed up one of 4 NT_PRXFPREG uses in the kernel.

Also, I'm not a fan of your proposed mechanism to "overload" the
elf_fpxregset_t. I'd rather see us introduce a new elf_vecregset_t
and have it typedef'd to be elf_fpxregset_t on i386, x86_64, ia64
