s390/boot/decompression: disable floating point in decompressor
my gcc 5.1 used an ldgr instruction with a register != 0,2,4,6 for spilling/filling into a floating point register in our decompressor. This will cause an AFP-register data exception as the decompressor did not setup the additional floating point registers via cr0. That causes a program check loop that looked like a hang with one "Uncompressing Linux... " message (directly booted via kvm) or a loop of "Uncompressing Linux... " messages (when booted via zipl boot loader). The offending code in my build was 48e400: e3 c0 af ff ff 71 lay %r12,-1(%r10) -->48e406: b3 c1 00 1c ldgr %f1,%r12 48e40a: ec 6c 01 22 02 7f clij %r6,2,12,0x48e64e but gcc could do spilling into an fpr at any function. We can simply disable floating point support at that early stage.
