Hmm, is it not ? I had that question but was not really sure. Dont
understand the difference between 'fast_exception_return' and
'ret_from_except' completely. Will converting the following sequence
of code

 	bl	load_up_fpu
+	bl	fpu_unav_exceptions_count
 	b	fast_exception_return


 	bl	load_up_fpu
        RECONCILE_IRQ_STATE(r10, r11)
        addi    r3,r1,STACK_FRAME_OVERHEAD
+	bl	fpu_unav_exceptions_count
 	b	ret_from_except

help solve the problem ?
