I'm not sure about that.

If we moved this code into the default FIQ handler that means the PMU
driver would have to explicitly share its irq value with the default FIQ
handler (which doesn't really care about that).

I'm inclined to view this code as the effect of avoiding indirection in
the default FIQ handler.

Regular irq code has nothing like this because &armpmu_dispatch_irq, irq
and get_cpu_ptr(&cpu_pmu->hw_events->percpu_pmu) would all be looked up
from the irqaction and any unwanted events are naturally filtered by the
irq dispatch.

After your review I'm very tempted to put together a patch that
dispatches NMIs indirectly from the default FIQ handler. However I still
don't have much of an answer to Russell's concerns about code review.
