I have heard of hardware that raised NMI in normal operation as a kind

OT: the linux-ecc project trapped NMI from memory errors and mapped out bad
memory pages (with a persistent map) so that bad memory could be used
reliably. So there are legitimate uses for NMI in normal operation. Debuggers can also use NMI.
