Seems fine.

Why ifdef kernel?

This would be better named something like hal_lpc2xxx_iap_call.

You say the user, but below, you do disable interrupts.

 It sounds like this could be a CDL option, which defaults to what you do
i.e. disabling interrupts (for safety). After all, the flash programming
would severely hamper real-time operation so many people would want to
avoid it..

Otherwise fine.
