arm-none-eabi-gcc uses floating point register to backup GPR in case of -O2 option

arm-none-eabi-gcc version:
(GNU Arm Embedded Toolchain 9-2020-q2-update) 9.3.1 20200408 (release)

When using following compiler flags:
-O2 -mcpu=cortex-m4 -mthumb -mfloat-abi=hard -mfpu=fpv4-sp-d16

the compiler use floating point register s16 as cache for general pur pose integral registers of Cortex M4 core.

This is done even though the function doesn't do explicit floating point operations.
I use RTOS for which FPU usage is restricted to certain tasks/threads.
In that case task executing the function fails with UsageFault/NOCP.

This happens when O2 optimization is used, in case of lower optimization levels problem doesn't occur.
Is that maybe possible to prohibit compiler from that kind of agressive optimization (using FPU registers to store GPR data)?

Some disassembler indication of the issue:

I'll appreciate if someone help me with this issue.
