Minix 3 has FPU(x87)/SSEx hardware support now

As I promised before here are some news about my activity at minix 3 project. My implementation of "Floating-point driver for MINIX 3" (aka "FPU hardware support"), which I had done in summer and added just few recent modifications later, was committed last week, so now minix' userland can forget about using software implementations of FP and SSEx instructions and switch to hardware.

So my first OS project is officially accepted and finished :-)
