OK, so our callback function name should be sensibly named
to match what the effect is supposed to be, and we should have
a sensibly named command, and we should make "nmi" be
a historical-legacy-backwards-compatibility command alias
(possibly only exposed for x86).

I honestly don't have a better name :).
