Subject: [PATCH] mn10300: fix build error of missing fpu_save()

I have 21 occurrences of kbuild test robot reporting this build failure
over more than one year and zero (0) attempts to fix it.  I have 2 alternate
(untested) fixes for it.  (If either of them causes a build error, it should
be simple to fix and I will do so.)

a. #include <asm/fpu.h> in <asm/switch_to.h> so that empty fpu_save() is
	visible
b. make <asm/switch_to.h> know about CONFIG_FPU not enabled

David, which one do you prefer?

Fengguang, it's allnoconfig => CONFIG_FPU=n that causes this build error.

----- a.-----
From: Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@...radead.org>

When CONFIG_FPU is not enabled on arch/mn10300, <asm/switch_to.h>
causes a build error with a call to fpu_save():

kernel/built-in.o: In function `.L410':
core.c:(.sched.text+0x28a): undefined reference to `fpu_save'

Fix this by including <asm/fpu.h> in <asm/switch_to.h> so that
an empty static inline fpu_save() is defined.

causes a build error with a call to fpu_save():

kernel/built-in.o: In function `.L410':
core.c:(.sched.text+0x28a): undefined reference to `fpu_save'

Fix this by defining switch_fpu() in <asm/switch_to.h> only when
CONFIG_FPU is enabled.
