Subject[RFT PATCH v1 4/7] arm64: provide boot option "eagerfpu" to control FPSIMD restore policy
Date
From: Jiang Liu <jiang.liu@huawei.com>

Provide tristate kernel boot option "eagerfpu" to control FPSIMD state
save and restore policy. It adopts the same scematics as x86.

The lazy FPSIMD restore policy needs to configured before any thread
makes use of FPSIMD registers, so change fpsimd_init() as arch_initcall.
