x86/fpu: Remove unnecessary saving of FPU registers in copy_fpstate_to_sigframe()

Since commit:

  eeec00d73be2e ("x86/fpu: Fault-in user stack if copy_fpstate_to_sigframe() fails")

there is no need to have FPU registers saved if
copy_fpregs_to_sigframe() fails, because we retry it after we resolved
the fault condition.

Saving the registers is not wrong but it is not necessary and it forces us
to load the FPU registers on the retry attempt.

Don't save the FPU registers if copy_fpstate_to_sigframe() fails.
