[cc rafael]

The mce resume is a sysdev.

sysdevs were always supposed to run completely with interrupts off. If they
don't anymore that's some kind of higher level resume code bug which you need
to fix there, not hack around in the low level code.

If it does that it likely broke more code too.

Obviously turning on preemption anywhere around the machine check is
fatal because it touches CPU state and if you reschedule you could
switch to another CPU and change or access the wrong CPU's state.
