SubjectRe: [PATCH] Prevent nested interrupts when the IRQ stack is near overflowing v2

The underlying question you posed was why don't we kill off the running
with irqs enabled cases. That requires more work but should definitely
happen.

I think you are trying to have a debate when we are in agreement anyway.
I don't btw think the workaround is 'unreliable', ugly as sin yes but the
logic appears sound.
