sh: Minor optimisations to FPU handling
A number of small optimisations to FPU handling, in particular: - move the task USEDFPU flag from the thread_info flags field (which is accessed asynchronously to the thread) to a new status field, which is only accessed by the thread itself. This allows locking to be removed in most cases, or can be reduced to a preempt_lock(). This mimics the i386 behaviour. - move the modification of regs->sr and thread_info->status flags out of save_fpu() to __unlazy_fpu(). This gives the compiler a better chance to optimise things, as well as making save_fpu() symmetrical with restore_fpu() and init_fpu(). - implement prepare_to_copy(), so that when creating a thread, we can unlazy the FPU prior to copying the thread data structures. Also make sure that the FPU is disabled while in the kernel, in particular while booting, and for newly created kernel threads, In a very artificial benchmark, the execution time for 2500000 context switches was reduced from 50 to 45 seconds.
