Sorry, I was a bit in a rush when I typed that mail and made some
errors as a result.  I think what you propose is reasonable, since
just clearing PSR.MFH will take care of avoiding needless
context-switching of f32-f127.  However, I think it'd still be
worthwhile to update the comment in copy_thread() to reflect this
thinking (basically, the paragraph starting with "XXX" would have to
be updated).
