Thanks for expanding on this, it makes the patch easier to follow :)

As noted before, I think if we use PACA_EXNMI for system reset, then
*hopefully* there should be minimal races with the initial use of other
thread's PACA at the start of the exception. So I'll work on getting
that in, but it need not prevent this patch from being merged first
IMO.

Is 8 the right number? I wonder if we have a define for it.

Does SPRN_TIR work?

This is quite neat now you've moved it to its own function. Nice.
It will be only a trivial clash with my patches now, I think.
