SubjectRe: [PATCH] MIPS: Validate PR_SET_FP_MODE prctl(2) requests against the ABI of the task

This seems reasonable, though in my view more because the FPU emulator
optimises out code for cases we shouldn't hit via cop1_64bit(). Allowing
user code to trigger these cases can only lead to odd and incorrect
behaviour so preventing that makes sense.

This seems like a distinct change that I think would be worth splitting
out to a separate patch.

Both changes look good to me though, so feel free to add:
