Hmm. Suresh, could you confirm these offsetof's are correct?

We are copying xstate_fx_sw_bytes array which is u64[6], but
start_pos == sizeof(i387_fxsave_struct) - padding ?

While we are here. Perhaps it would be more symmetrical to do

ret = user_regset_copyout();
if (ret)
return ret;
instead of "if (!ret)" which needs a tab, but this is up to you.

Another very minor nit, this is the only user of xsave_hdr, but this
var was defined at the top. Perhaps it would be a bit more clean to
have

struct xsave_struct *xsave = target->thread.xstate->xsave;

and use it in 1st and 3rd copyout?

Speaking about the first user_regset_copyout(), perhaps xsave->i387
would be more clear than xsave?

Oleg.
