I think this one I want to keep. Since fatal_err is 0, !fatal_error is 1
and the register write is actually executed.
I also want to keep the parameter even though it is only used with 0.
The register bit causes a less drastic recovery, but if we would
discover that that is not working ok, we rather discard the debug data
we get in this case instead of letting the recovery fail. I think it
does not hurt to keep it. Maybe you can add a comment?

Thanks

Frank
