When switching thread contexts the kernel does, in order:
 
* Load FPEXC
* Save the LR to r1- this LR is the return back to the main scheduling and context switching function
* Load r4-r11, SP, LR
* Branch back to r1, preserving the LR which was just reloaded, back to the main scheduling function, but in the context of the newly switched-to thread
