Why don't you bailout if in nmi here like we discussed?

So here now interrupts can be either disabled or enabled. Previous
version disabled interrupts here, so are we sure it is safe to have them
enabled at this point? I do not see any problem yet, will keep thinking.

What about using NMI to wake sleepers? I think it was discussed, but
forgot why it was dismissed.
