Subject[PATCH v5-fix 28/28] x86/fpu/amx: Clear the AMX state when appropriate
Date
When AMX is enabled, and an AMX-task is saved, explicitly initialize the
AMX state after the XSAVE.

This assures that the kernel will only request idle states with clean AMX
state. In the case of the C6 idle state, this allows the hardware to get to
a deeper power saving condition.
