Subject: [PATCH 0/2] x86 FPU API

Currently all fpu accessors are wedded to task_struct.  However kvm also uses
the fpu in a different context.  Introduce an FPU API, and replace the
current uses with the new API.

While this patchset is oriented towards deeper changes, as a first step it
simlifies xsave for kvm.

Avi Kivity (2):
  x86: eliminate TS_XSAVE
  x86: Introduce 'struct fpu' and related API
