How do you know the core will not service an interrupt here?
Why are you not disabling (postponing) local interrupts after this
critical section? (which you were in the RFC)
If the argument is that you didn't notice any issue with phc2sys -N 5,
that's not a good argument. "Unlikely for a condition to happen" does
not mean deterministic.
Here is an example of the system servicing an interrupt during the
transmission of a 12-byte SPI transfer (proof that they can occur
anywhere where they aren't disabled):
