I've added here:

+ /*
+ * Attempt to restore the FPU registers directly from user
+ * memory. For that to succeed, the user accesses cannot cause
+ * page faults. If they do, fall back to the slow path below,
+ * going through the kernel buffer.
+ */

so that it is clear what's happening.

This function is doing gazillion things again ;-\
