Can you provide a unified patch so I can review quickly? Sorry for the delay

Here you are.  Note that the manpage is not updated yet, as I'm waiting
for your comments on the xs_rfbm approach.

Please use proper KNF here and in other places

Can't we just do this? Seems simpler

	fpu_save->sv_xsave_hdr.xsh_xstate_bv =
	    (fpu_save->sv_xsave_hdr.xsh_xstate_bv & ~xstate->xs_rfbm) |

Unfortunately, in this code you will likely hit a race; between the moment you
set fpu_save->sv_xsave_hdr.xsh_xstate_bv and the moment you reach COPY_COMPONENT,
the thread could have been context-switched, and xstate_bv could have been

I think you can work around this race by adding kpreempt_disable/enable at
the beginning/end of the function. ISTR there is the same problem in the
other fpregs ptrace functions. In fact, there are a lot of problems in our
FPU code right now.

Otherwise the rfbm approach seems good to me.
