Subject: [PATCH v4 0/5] riscv: Add support to no-FPU systems

This patchset adds an option, CONFIG_FPU, to enable/disable floating-
point procedures.

Kernel's new behavior will be as follows:

* with CONFIG_FPU=y
  All FPU codes are reserved.  If no FPU is found during booting, a
  global flag will be set, and those functions will be bypassed with
  condition check to that flag.

* with CONFIG_FPU=n
  No floating-point instructions in kernel and all related settings
  are excluded.

Changes in v4:
 - Append a new patch to detect existence of FPU and followups.
 - Add SPDX header to newly created fpu.S.
 - Fix a build error, sorry for that.
 - Fix wording, style, etc.

Changes in v3:
 - Refactor the whole patch into independent ones.

Changes in v2:
 - Various code cleanups and style fixes.

Alan Kao (5):
  Extract FPU context operations from entry.S
  Refactor FPU code in signal setup/return procedures
  Cleanup ISA string setting
  Allow to disable FPU support
  Auto-detect whether a FPU exists
