Moved this function out of softfloat-specialize into fpmodule.c.
This effectively isolates all the changes required for integrating with the
Linux kernel into fpmodule.c. Porting to NetBSD should only require modifying
fpmodule.c to integrate with the NetBSD kernel (I hope!).
[1/1/99: Not quite true any more unfortunately. There is Linux-specific
code to access data in user space in some other source files at the
moment (grep for get_user / put_user calls). --philb]
This function is called by the SoftFloat routines to raise a floating
point exception. We check the trap enable byte in the FPSR, and raise
a SIGFPE exception if necessary. If not the relevant bits in the
cumulative exceptions flag byte are set and we return.
