I'll never learn that. /me goes to write some elisp.

Nah. The wonder of membug_write() is that it does not write behind the
end of the buffer which is designed to allow partial reads w/o checking
a gazillion times for return values etc.

The point is that this gives us the proper init.mxcsr value when SSE and
YMM are not set.

because I missed that.

Thanks,
