I think I was just being vague.  It would be:

     prev_state = ist_enter(regs);
          .... beginning of do_machine_check() here ...

     if (whatever condition) {
        ist_begin_non_atomic();
        local_irq_enable();

        ...

        local_irq_disable();
        ist_end_non_atomic();
     ist_exit(regs, prev_state);
