Hmm... Inserting following 2 lines after each get_user, put_user (and
do_dsemulret, mips_dsemul, cond_resched) in cp1emu.c is better?
Actually, FPU might be lost in get_user, so get_user should get it
back? I don't think so. Similarly, getting it back by the caller of
emulator is not so bad, I think. Maintenance of FPU ownership is not
emulator's work, isn't it?
