I'm not sure I consider this a cleanup.  The processor.h
inlines/macros were meant to map more or less directly to processor
instructions.  Mucking with psr.ic is quite expensive so it's useful
to be able to batch several things together and not have to toggle
psr.ic every time.  But then again, if we never use it that way, I can
see your point...
