Glad to see this. Now the drivers and individual arch's can start moving
to these new APIs before we settle on the common infrastructure. Once
the common infrastructure is in, it should hopefully be trivial to move
each arch to it.

Do you want to add a "May NOT be called from atomic context"? Yeah, the
stub makes it obvious, but I think it would be consistent to add the
comment in. No strong opinion though.
Not sure if you care, but LGTM/Ack.
