If you failed at the first context switch, the possible cause is in head.S
where psr.dfh is initialized as disabled for idle domain. Then the first
time when you switch from idle to domain0, disabled fp fault occurs
unless you explicitly enable psr.dfh like in your patch. This is one place
where psr value doesn't get from hardware exception.
Linux is immune because it always touches fph only for the one
owning the that high area.
