Subject[PATCH 174/208] x86/fpu: Initialize fpregs in fpu__init_cpu_generic()
Date
FPU fpregs do not get initialized during bootup on secondary CPUs,
on non-xsave capable CPUs.

For example on one of my systems, the secondary CPU has this FPU
state on bootup:

x86: Booting SMP configuration:
.... node #0, CPUs: #1

x86/fpu ######################

Note how CWD and TWD are off their usual init state (0x037f and 0xffff),
and how FP0 and FP1 has non-zero content.

This is normally not a problem, because any user-space FPU state
is initalized properly - but it can complicate the use of FPU
instructions in kernel code via kernel_fpu_begin()/end(): if
the FPU using code does not initialize registers itself, it
might generate spurious exceptions depending on which CPU it
executes on.

Fix this by initializing the x87 state via the FNINIT instruction.
