Bug#440068: gnumach: GPT in fp_save, fpu.c:675

Ever since applying this patch, mach panics for me on startup. It gets
as far as starting sshd, then it panics with

panic: zalloc: zone i386 pcb state exhausted
kernel breakpoint trap, eip 0x1179d7
stopped at 0x1179d6: int $3

Any ideas why I'm getting a panic while others aren't? (I haven't had
too much time to debug on my own; I'm using QEMU-x86 with kqemu
acceleration on ebaled as my platform)
