I really didn't pay attention to that as it's burried in the GIC/ARM series
which is usually Marc's playground.

Adding NMI delivery support at low level architecture irq chip level is
perfectly fine, but the exposure of that needs to be restricted very
much. Adding it to the generic interrupt control interfaces is not going to
happen. That's doomed to begin with and a complete abuse of the interface
as the handler can not ever be used for that.

Thanks,
