- Fix sleazy-fpu implementation to actually avoid unnecessary traps on fpu-intensive  programs
- Hypervisor-side of fix for bug #248398: HVM domain hangs during (F-7) install. Backport of fix from xen-unstable: 15239:656b8175f4f2. This replaces xen-vpic-set-vector.patch, that didn't go upstream and didn't have its user-space part added to the xen package.
