x86: Call fixup_exception() before notify_die() in math_error()

commit 3ae6295ccb7cf6d344908209701badbbbb503e40 upstream.

fpu__drop() has an explicit fwait which under some conditions can trigger a
fixable FPU exception while in kernel. Thus, we should attempt to fixup the
exception first, and only call notify_die() if the fixup failed just like
in do_general_protection(). The original call sequence incorrectly triggers
KDB entry on debug kernels under particular FPU-intensive workloads.

Andy noted, that this makes the whole conditional irq enable thing even
more inconsistent, but fixing that it outside the scope of this.
