Subject[PATCH 16/27] x86/entry: Add TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD
Date
Add TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD. This is reserved for loading the FPU registers
before returning to userland. This flag must not be set for systems
without a FPU.
If this flag is cleared, the CPU's FPU register hold the current content
of current()'s FPU register. The in-memory copy (union fpregs_state) is
not valid.
If this flag is set, then all of CPU's FPU register may hold a random
value (except for PKRU) and it is required to load the content of the
FPU register on return to userland.

It is introduced now, so we can add code handling it now before adding
the main feature.
