Subject[PATCH 05/11] x86-64: Disable preemption when using TS_USEDFPU
Date
Consolidates code and fixes the below race for 64-bit.

commit 9fa2f37bfeb798728241cc4a19578ce6e4258f25
Author: torvalds <torvalds>
Date: Tue Sep 2 07:37:25 2003 +0000

Be a lot more careful about TS_USEDFPU and preemption

We had some races where we testecd (or set) TS_USEDFPU together
with sequences that depended on the setting (like clearing or
setting the TS flag in %cr0) and we could be preempted in between,
which screws up the FPU state, since preemption will itself change
USEDFPU and the TS flag.

This makes it a lot more explicit: the "internal" low-level FPU
functions ("__xxxx_fpu()") all require preemption to be disabled,
and the exported "real" functions will make sure that is the case.

One case - in __switch_to() - was switched to the non-preempt-safe
internal version, since the scheduler itself has already disabled
preemption.
