CVS commit: src/sys/arch/amd64/amd64

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   jmcneill
Date:           Tue Dec 20 13:17:05 UTC 2011

Modified Files:
        src/sys/arch/amd64/amd64: process_machdep.c

Log Message:

Initialize abridged tag word properly. x87 spec says FNINIT says tag word
contains FFFFh (all stack locations empty) which would make abridged tag
word 00h. From the Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer's

"The FXSAVE instruction saves an abridged version of the x87 FPU tag word
in the FTW field (unlike the FSAVE instruction, which saves the complete
tag word). The tag information is saved in physical register order (R0
through R7), rather than in top-of- stack (TOS) order. With the FXSAVE
instruction, however, only a single bit (1 for valid or 0 for empty) is
saved for each tag."
