Initializing the FPU during the early boot process is a pointless
exercise. Early boot is convoluted and fragile enough.

Nothing requires that the FPU is set up early. It has to be initialized
before fork_init() because the task_struct size depends on the FPU register
buffer size.

Move the initialization to arch_cpu_finalize_init() which is the perfect
place to do so.

No functional change.

This allows to remove quite some of the custom early command line parsing,
but that's subject to the next installment.

The backport of this patch into chromeos-5.10 and chromeos-5.15 via stable
relase merges is causing various Chromebooks (not all of them) to crash
early during boot. Subsequent fixes have not addressed the problem for us,
so we already reverted the patch from chromeos-5.15 and will revert it
from chromeos-5.10 as well.

I don't know if this is a Chromebook specific problem, or if it affects
mainline, so this is just a heads-up in case others experience similar

Another thing - if you choose to revert the arch_finalize patch then bear in mind that the GDS' 'force' option is rendered inoperable as the FPU can't be disabled due to the way things are sequenced.
