Word description
Replaces the set of floating-point exception flags with the set specified in exceptions.

Notes
On Intel platforms, the legacy x87 floating-point unit does not support setting exception flags, so this word only clears the x87 exception flags. However, the SSE unit's flags are set as expected.
