If you have set CPUTYPE in /etc/src.conf such that your userland binaries
are built with SSE, etc. then I expect most things to break because the FPU
is in a funky state without this patch. I suspect if you don't set CPUTYPE
so that your userland binaries do not use the FPU, you can probably resume
just fine without this fix.
