This seems fragile.

XSAVE* will decline to write out state for feature i when XFD[i]=1 and
will instead write out the init state. That means that, at this point,
we switch XFD and yet leave state for feature i in place.

That means this *MUST* come before any copy_fpregs_to_fpstate() occurs.

Could we please add some FPU_WARN_ON() checks to ensure that no XSAVE*
is ever performed with XINUSE=1 *and* XFD armed?
