\item On the x86, setting the accrued exceptions of an unmasked
exception would cause a FP trap. The macro behaviour of restoring
the accrued exceptions ensures than if an accrued exception is
initial not flagged and occurs within the body it will be
initially not flagged and occurs within the body it will be
restored/cleared at the exit of the body and thus not cause a
trap.

\item The setting of the FP flags uses the

the flags which many include other state. We assume this state

hasn't changed in between getting and setting the state. For
example, if you used the FP unit between the above calls, the
state may be incorrectly restored! The
