They are indeed checked in those functions.  I also need to check to
make sure that the switching from L2 to L1 is done correctly in cause of
SVME being low.  I tested it with Xen and it worked correctly but it
might not be failing correctly.  The joys of being under the weather and
forgetting all your mental notes.  I'll try to send out a v2 of this
patch today with the corrections. 

Thank you for your input.
