Messed up, aka -ENOBRAIN triggered. This was a spurious backport of the
fix I did for 4.9, as the former location of the eagerfpu fixup
introduced a weird bug. The fpu switch init code there postpones the
update of the eager FPU capability until the very end of the routine.

Commit reverted, I'll be issuing a patch within minutes.

Thanks for the heads up.
