I think v2 of the patch handles this case correctly:
/* save state for resume */
if (last_VFP_context[ti->cpu]) {
printk(KERN_DEBUG "%s: saving vfp state\n", __func__);
fmxr(FPEXC, fpexc | FPEXC_EN);
vfp_save_state(last_VFP_context[ti->cpu], fpexc);
last_VFP_context[ti->cpu] = NULL;
fmxr(FPEXC, fpexc & ~FPEXC_EN);
}
This version enables the VFP if it was not enabled, but saves the
original fpexc value.
