This is otherwise a major overhaul/addition to the CPU port
requirements. I'd lean in favor of adding any CPU_* API that is
necessary to support vectoring from an exception to a signal. I don't
think we can make this kind of intrusive modification to basic
interrupt handling capabilities across all ports easily. Some of that
code is old and very stable.
