I'm curious, why? Its 32bytes that is allocated a maximum of twice.

(my questions on what needs to go in there were because it looked like a third

#ifdef in structs just breeds more #ifdefs, as the code that accesses those
members has to be behind the same set of conditions.

Given this, I prefer the #ifdefs around cpu_soft_restart() as it doesn't force
us to add more #ifdefs later.

For either option without purgatory_info:
