I try to move this to other fault handlers where there is some 4xx
specific stuff already defined, but it keeps moving around and finding
its way back here.

I dunno.  They have also been moving around during the 4xx port.
I just put them where the folks that send the patches have them.
I'll take a look at this since gdb is currently broken on 4xx.
They have to be context switched, and maybe someone though gdb should
have access to them.....
