if you scroll up there is this:
| * to loaded again on return to userland (overriding last_cpu avoids the
| * optimisation).
| */
| set_thread_flag(TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD);
| __fpu_invalidate_fpregs_state(fpu);
|
| if ((unsigned long)buf_fx % 64)
| fx_only = 1;

| ret = copy_user_to_fpregs_zeroing(buf_fx, xfeatures, fx_only);
| pagefault_enable();


so I just removed that part because it was already done earlier.
Is it still weird and should be mentioned in the changelog?
