[Resets while using netscape or mozilla]

Try to build a kernel without options I686_CPU.

There is a problem with it, where there was a recent commit to
sys/arch/i386/isa/npx.c which could fix that problem:

Remove fwait after fxsave.

Raising math exception from fpu_save causes machine reboots.
Also, this fwait would cause incorrect results, as pending exceptions
are to be handled later after fxrstor.
