giveup_all() causes FPU/VMX/VSX facilities to be disabled in a threads
MSR. If the thread performing the giveup was transactional, the kernel
must record which facilities were in use before the giveup as the
thread must have these facilities re-enabled on return to userspace.
* This is called if we are on the way out to userspace and the
* TIF_RESTORE_TM flag is set. It checks if we need to reload
* FP and/or vector state and does so if necessary.
* If userspace is inside a transaction (whether active or
* suspended) and FP/VMX/VSX instructions have ever been enabled
* inside that transaction, then we have to keep them enabled
* and keep the FP/VMX/VSX state loaded while ever the transaction
* continues. The reason is that if we didn't, and subsequently
* got a FP/VMX/VSX unavailable interrupt inside a transaction,
* we don't know whether it's the same transaction, and thus we
* don't know which of the checkpointed state and the transactional
* state to use.
Calling check_if_tm_restore_required() will set TIF_RESTORE_TM and
save the MSR if needed.
