How about below ....

"When DSP extensions are present, some of the regular integer instructions such as
DIV, MACD etc are executed in the DSP unit with semantics alterable by flags in
DSP_CTRL aux register. This register is writable by userspace and thus can
potentially affect corresponding instructions in kernel code, intentionally or
otherwise. So safegaurd kernel by effectively disabling DSP_CTRL upon bootup and
every entry to kernel.

Do note that for this config we simply zero out the DSP_CTRL reg assuming
userspace doesn't really care about DSP. The next patch caters to the DSP aware
userspace which this actually saved/restored upon kernel entry."

typo: Below

Looks good otherwise. No need to respin just for this.
