The kernel doesn't use XSAVEOPT any more.  How about:

When executing XSAVES (or other optimized XSAVE instructions)

Additionally, copy_xxx_to_xstate() may result in an xsave buffer with a
bit clear in xfeatures but the corresponding state region not containing
the state's init value.

Maybe say what the function does, e.g.:

This function fills in the init values for the X87 and SSE states if the
corresponding xfeatures bits are clear.

This is confusing, since we never use xsaveopt.  It's also wrong -- see
above.  How about just removing it?

Does this result in the mxcsr_mask and mxcsr fields being correct?
There is a silly number of special cases there.
