There are no users of fpu__restore() so it is time to remove it.
The comment regarding fpu__restore() and TS bit is stale since commit
  b3b0870ef3ffe ("i387: do not preload FPU state at task switch time")
and has no meaning since.

 Note, some FPU functions are already explicitly preempt safe.  For example,
 kernel_fpu_begin and kernel_fpu_end will disable and enable preemption.
-However, fpu__restore() must be called with preemption disabled.
