Thanks all the same for your detailed description. A quick search in
glibc shows that x86_64 FP exceptions in fact work somewhat different in
that it additionally reads and writes from the SSE control register,
__asm__ ("fnstenv %0\n"
"stmxcsr %1" : "=m" (*&temp), "=m" (*&temp.__mxcsr));
__asm__ ("fldenv %0\n"
"ldmxcsr %1" : : "m" (temp), "m" (temp.__mxcsr));
