Now as opposed to when? Only as opposed to what else?

I'd prefer .macro over #define.

This is a start, but we'll also need to save some more context to allow
TLB misses from within the exception (e.g. if a machine check handler or
GDB stub writes to a serial port, and the I/O registers aren't in the
TLB). At a minimum I think we need to save SRR0, SRR1,
SPRN_SPRG_GEN_SCRATCH, SPRN_SPRG_TLB_SCRATCH, and the MAS registers.
We'll also need to make the bolted TLB miss handlers capable of pointing
to different extables (though they won't need to auto-advance as the
original TLB miss handlers do -- we would advance SPRN_SPRG_TLB_EXFRAME
from this code), and the original TLB miss handlers will now need to
support more than 3 levels of nesting.
For the e6500 tablewalk TLB miss handler, we'll need to do something
special if we interrupt it when the lock is held, to revoke the lock and
return to code that retries.
Is there anything else I'm missing?
