I don't have the entire context, but if your platform is part of
multi-platform, it means that regardless of which platform is actually
booting your system, you will register your fault hook. Is this the
intended behavior?

Generally speaking, in a multiplatform context, many arch_initcall()
should have a conditional to check whether we're really on a platform
where the initcall is needed.
