x86/fpu: Fix i486 + no387 boot crash by only saving FPU registers on context switch if there is an FPU
commit 2224d616528194b02424c91c2ee254b3d29942c3 upstream. Booting an i486 with "no387 nofxsr" ends with with the following crash: math_emulate: 0060:c101987d Kernel panic - not syncing: Math emulation needed in kernel on the first context switch in user land. The reason is that copy_fpregs_to_fpstate() tries FNSAVE which does not work as the FPU is turned off. This bug was introduced in: f1c8cd0176078 ("x86/fpu: Change fpu->fpregs_active users to fpu->fpstate_active") Add a check for X86_FEATURE_FPU before trying to save FPU registers (we have such a check in switch_fpu_finish() already).
