System: NetBSD nsticlxb388 5.1_RC2 NetBSD 5.1_RC2 (GENERIC) #0: Fri May 21 
04:32:33 UTC 2010
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386

       MXCSR_MASK field of the FXSAVE image is not initialized properly 
(en_rsvd3 field, file sys/arch/i386/include/npx.h)
       Please see "11.6.6 Guidelines for Writing to the MXCSR Register" in 
"Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developers Manual Volume 1"

I was able to modify MXCSR in one process under GDB and obtain modified MXCSR 
in another process.

Sorry for possibly duplicated report.
Please refer to the documentation for a description of correct MASK
