That seems to be a rather heavyweight change in a critical path.

A more useful change might be to implement lockdep support for m68k
and see if that warns about any actual problems. I'm not sure
what is actually missing for that, but these are the commits that
added it for other architectures in the past:

3c4697982982 ("riscv: Enable LOCKDEP_SUPPORT & fixup TRACE_IRQFLAGS_SUPPORT")
000591f1ca33 ("csky: Enable LOCKDEP_SUPPORT")
78cdfb5cf15e ("openrisc: enable LOCKDEP_SUPPORT and irqflags tracing")
8f371c752154 ("xtensa: enable lockdep support")
bf2d80966890 ("microblaze: Lockdep support")

Then it would just end up always warning when a nested hardirq happens,
right? That seems no different to dropping support for nested hardirqs
on m68k altogether, which of course is what you suggested already.
