Appended patch should fix it. Eric, can you please check if it fixes the issue?
I have to fix the math-emu aswell. But I will send a different patch for it.

[patch] fix fpu restore during sig return

If the task never used fpu, initialize the fpu before restoring the FP state
from the signal handler context. This will allocate the fpu state,
if the task never needed it before.
