Not sure what you mean by "NMI like".
Interrupt priorities are fixed in the current xtensa architecture, and
we can in theory
mask certain level and below, but practically we always mask all low-
and medium-
level interrupts.

Also we currently can't have handlers for high priority interrupts written in C.
