  Avoid writing uninitialized stack data into a thread's MMX/SSE state by
  first getting the current state with td_thr_getxmmregs_p.  Without this,
  debugging a threaded app that uses libthr resulted in kernel panics or
  spurious SIGFPEs for me.
  (As of revision 1.6, sys/i386/i386/ptrace_machdep.c masks off the
  reserved bits in the mxcsr register, which prevents the kernel panics.)
  Architectures without PT_GETXMMREGS are not affected.
