So I wanted this to match the 'usual' WARN*() APIs in appearance, with
only at the end a small signal that this is conditional on FPU
debugging enabled. In terms of code, we should think of them as
WARN_ON()s. Slapping FPU_ in front of them distracts from that IMHO.

No strong feelings though.

Ingo
