CONFIG_LAZY_FP_SHARING

(No prompt – not directly user assignable.)

Type: bool

Help

This hidden option allows multiple threads to use the floating point registers, using logic to lazily save/restore the floating point register state on context switch.

On Intel Core processors, may be vulnerable to exploits which allows malware to read the contents of all floating point registers, see CVE-2018-3665.
