Message:

Reduce locking further with lazy FPU

It turns out we only need a lock to synchronize between the trap
handler and thread destructor. The atomic operations introduced
are just plain reads and writes, written in an ugly fashion to
appease C11 undefined behavior gods.

In principle we could get rid of that if we made cpu_t::fpu_owner
a strong reference, but that would mean a thread structure could
be held in limbo indefinitely if a new thread is not being
scheduled or doesn't use FPU.
