Unfortunatly no, I have no idea. My three platforms (860, 885 and 8321)
are not SMPs so that warning would not appear, but I added a WARN_ON(1)
just become calling mark_initmem_nx(), and I can confirm that MSR has EE
set on all three at that time.

So as you suggest, there must be a platform specific stuff leaving the
interrupts disabled.
