So, the issue with it is that some contexts might be using PSR.I to
disable interrupts (any contexts with async errors or debug exceptions
disabled, kvm guest entry paths, pseudo-NMIs, ...).

If any of these contexts calls local_irq_save()/local_irq_restore() or
local_daif_save()/local_daif_restore(), by only relying on PSR_I_BIT to
represent the PMR status, we might end up clearing PSR.I when we shouldn't.

I'm not sure whether there are no callers of these functions in those
context. But if that is the case, we could simplify things, yes.

Thanks,
