Sebastian Andrzej Siewior - Feb. 5, 2019, 2:37 p.m.
With lazy-FPU support the (now named variable) ->initialized was set to true if
the CPU's FPU registers were holding the a valid state of the FPU registers for
the active process. If it was set to false then the FPU state was saved in
fpu->state and the FPU was deactivated.
With lazy-FPU gone, ->initialized is always true for user threads and kernel
threads never this function so ->initialized is always true in
copy_fpstate_to_sigframe().
The using_compacted_format() check is also a leftover from the lazy-FPU time.
In the `->initialized == false' case copy_to_user() would copy the compacted
buffer while userland would expect the non-compacted format instead. So in
order to save the FPU state in the non-compacted form it issues the xsave
opcode to save the *current* FPU state.
The FPU is not enabled so the attempt raises the FPU trap, the trap restores
the FPU content and re-enables the FPU and the xsave opcode is invoked again and
succeeds. *This* does not longer work since commit

  bef8b6da9522 ("x86/fpu: Handle #NM without FPU emulation as an error")

Remove check for ->initialized because it is always true and remove the
false condition. Update the comment to reflect that the "state is always live".
