Bug Description

OpenBSD/amd64 recently began running signal handlers with a clean FPU state, making it necessary to load the floating point control word. The attached patch does exactly this, and works equally well on OpenBSD systems from both before and after the signal handler change was made.

This patch is necessary to build SBCL x86-64 on recent -current snapshots of OpenBSD, and for the upcoming 4.8 release.
