[PATCH] x86/fpu: drop_fpu() should not assume that tsk == current

From: Oleg Nesterov
Date: Mon Mar 09 2015 - 13:16:42 EST

drop_fpu() does clear_used_math() and usually this is correct because
tsk == current. However switch_fpu_finish()->restore_fpu_checking() is
called before it updates the "current_task" variable. If it fails, we
will wrongly clear the PF_USED_MATH flag of the previous task.
