avoids overwriting...

So AFAICT, this thing is called by PTRACE_GETFPREGS but looking at ltp:

$ git grep PTRACE_GETFPREGS
$

so this is used - if at all used - by some super duper old binaries
somewhere.

manpage says "PTRACE_GETREGS and PTRACE_GETFPREGS are not present on all
architectures." which could explain why. I wonder if we should add some
stupid test cases so that we can at least exercise this...

With the above nitpicks addressed:
