Looks good. Just two nits.

What is the purpose of this 'in_use' field? Currently it's only
touched in three places:

- set when entering guest;
- cleared when exiting to userspace;
- checked when freeing a guest FPU;

The last one can be easily checked by comparing to current fps.

Any other intended usage which is currently missed for guest FPU?

This can be a direct value update to guest_fpu->fpstate since
curfps has already been acquired in the start.

ditto.

Thanks
