Probably only if the toplevel transaction is also aborted. Might not be
entirely trivial to determine.

Hm, we should never bomb out of the middle of anything with this, right?
I mean all the itmeout handler does is set a volatile var and set a
latch, the rest is done in the interrupt handler? Which is not called in
the signal handler.

I'm no targuing for the current order, just that one argument ;). FWIW,
I think Vik wrote this after discussing with me, and IIRC there was not
a lot of reasoning going into the specific location for doing this.
