Perhaps... but it's not the _second_ machine check. We already take 33
of them, and recover, while the i8042 driver is poking for hardware. We
also tend to survive a few while the 8250 driver is poking... but not
all of them.

Some timing issue with recovering and then causing another machine check
in quick succession?
