These could go in the fpsimd.c file, they are not used outside it.

Better to write as:

if (AARCH64_FPCR_DEFAULT_VAL)
state->fpcr = AARCH64_FPCR_DEFAULT_VAL;

The compiler should optimise it out.

That's the wrong place for such call. This function is supposed to save
the existing FP context and not modify it. Ideally we should do this as
with the other registers, just restoring them when returning to user.
But I wouldn't add fpsr to pt_regs, so somewhere like handle_signal()
should be OK.
