Xenomai might preempt linux when linux has cleared a tasks MSR_FP, but

hit one of the codepaths that save FPU state if MSR_FP is set, the
wrong FPU state might be saved to the task. The attached patch should
fix this. I couldn't try it on most recent Xenomai trunk, because
latency wouldn't build anymore. However, I see no reason it shouldn't
work. All thee having trouble with X and Xenomai, give this a shot.
Merged in r383, thanks.
On a related note, how do you think patches to Linux kernel that don't
fit into I-pipe should be handled? Put into patches directory
separately? There are now at least two instances for 2.6.14/ppc: the fpu
bug that I already posted on this thread and the ppc64 UP building bug
that effectively makes impossible to build I-pipe 2.6.14 for UP on ppc64.
