Yes, I have done this for v2, which I will send shortly.

I think we may want to keep vector separate for performance on architectures
with separate FP and vector register files. For now, I have limited my changes
to FPU support only, which means I have removed VSX/Altivec from here; the
AMDGPU code doesn't need Altivec anyway.

I've included this in v2 as well.

ARM partially enforces this at compile time: it disallows calling
kernel_neon_begin() inside a translation unit that has NEON enabled. That
doesn't prevent the programmer from calling a FPU-enabled function from outside
a begin/end section, but it does prevent the compiler from generating unexpected
FPU usage behind your back. I implemented this same functionality for RISC-V.

Actually tracking all possibly-FPU-tainted functions and their call sites is
probably possible, but a much larger task.
