Yeah, it makes sense. I will post v4.

Well, min_size and max_size are not task-specific. So, it will be wasteful to
include in struct fpu.

I will follow your suggestion to add new helpers to access the size values,
instead of exporting them.

Oh, I see. Thank you.

Posted, [1]. After all, the proposal is to remove the helper.
