Ugh. This suggests reset is probably not really generic...

Well, I'm planning to move the bodies of all the ifdefs into
a cpu_check_interrupts() provided by the target's cpu.h[*].
This x86 bit is just awkward because it means there's
x86 stuff both before and after the generic reset code.

[*] not a cpu method since it seemed like it would be
a bad idea to have a function pointer call every
time round the main loop when there's a blocked
