I've added here:

+               /*
+                * Attempt to restore the FPU registers directly from user
+                * memory. For that to succeed, the user accesses cannot cause
+                * page faults. If they do, fall back to the slow path below,
+                * going through the kernel buffer.
+                */

so that it is clear what's happening.

This function is doing gazillion things again ;-\
