Subject[PATCH 2/2] x86/fpu: split old & new fpu handling into separate functions
Date
From: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com>

By moving all of the new fpu state handling into switch_fpu_finish,
the code can be simplified some more. This does get rid of the
prefetch, but given the size of the fpu register state on modern
CPUs, and the amount of work done by __switch_to in-between both
functions, the value of a single cache line prefetch seems somewhat
dubious anyway.
