x86/fpu: Drop_fpu() should not assume that tsk equals current

drop_fpu() does clear_used_math() and usually this is correct
because tsk == current.

However switch_fpu_finish()->restore_fpu_checking() is called before
__switch_to() updates the "current_task" variable. If it fails,
we will wrongly clear the PF_USED_MATH flag of the previous task.

So use clear_stopped_child_used_math() instead.
