Just because hardware exists does not mean that we have to support it.

eCos was not designed to support an MMU for protection between user
level address spaces. It would require a significant redesign and
essentially a total reimplementation of eCos to properly support

If an ISR wants to re-enable interrupts while it works it can do so
and the HAL will handle it. By default ISRs do not do this and eCos
then handles interrupts sequentially.
