Question Floating-Point Reentrancy

Hello all!

I have been searching for quite some time now, and I am completely unable to find the answer to this question.

Is standard floating point arithmatic in the Linux kernel in GNU C reentrant? If you do have an FPU, or don't have an FPU, will that change the answer?

Thanks in advance for any reply!
