I don't think so from my understanding.

Firstly, in order to raise an undefined instruction fault, the coprocessor
has to be targetted with an instruction for it. So the faulting instruction
here must always be for the VFP coprocessor.

Secondly, in order to get an asynchronous exception, the VFP hardware has
to be enabled. We only retry the instruction if the VFP hardware wasn't
enabled.

So, here's the revised patch. Ack?
