is this spinlock legal? what happens if we are getting interrupted by NMI?

printk()
 vprintk_emit()
  vscnprintf()
   pointer()
    ptr_to_id()
     initialize_ptr_secret()
      spin_lock(&key_lock)

----> NMI

      printk()
       printk_safe_log_store()
        vscnprintf()
         pointer()
          ptr_to_id()
           initialize_ptr_secret()
            spin_lock(&key_lock)   <<<<


or am I completely misreading the patch? sorry if so.
