Subject[PATCH 2/4] x86, fpu: run device not available trap with interrupts enabled
Date
In order to allow a task's fpu state to fully float, we may need to
bring it back from another processor. To do that, we need interrupts to
be enabled so we can fire off an IPI to that processor.

May break 80386/7 combos with FERR# wired through the interrupt controller.
