x86/fpu: Don't export __kernel_fpu_{begin,end}()

There is one user of __kernel_fpu_begin() and before invoking it,
it invokes preempt_disable(). So it could invoke kernel_fpu_begin()
right away. The 32bit version of arch_efi_call_virt_setup() and
arch_efi_call_virt_teardown() does this already.

The comment above *kernel_fpu*() claims that before invoking
__kernel_fpu_begin() preemption should be disabled and that KVM is a
good example of doing it. Well, KVM doesn't do that since commit

  f775b13eedee2 ("x86,kvm: move qemu/guest FPU switching out to vcpu_run")

so it is not an example anymore.

With EFI gone as the last user of __kernel_fpu_{begin|end}(), both can
be made static and not exported anymore.
