With the advent of pseudo NMIs on arm64 its been possible to raise
serial device interrupt as an NMI in polling mode. With that its now
possible to do a magic sysrq in NMI context rather than in normal IRQ
context. So make sysrq handler NMI aware and allow system requests to
be marked as NMI safe which can run directly in NMI context while
categorized as not being NMI safe will be queued as irq_work for later
processing in normal interrupt context.

This feature is especially helpful in case the primary CPU is stuck in
deadlock with interrupts disabled won't honour serial device interrupt.
So with sysrq running in NMI context is helpful to debug such scenarios.
