Oh, Greg, since that series is tested by Raphael on top of 3.2.6
already, let's just make that be the stable backport.

It does mean that the stable backport will contain that whole "rip out
fp state preloading and reimplement it" thing, but hey, considering
that when I tried to avoid it I clearly screwed something up, maybe
that's all for the best. And perhaps staying closer to the development
tree is a good idea anyway in case there are any other issues.
