Sure this is about Motorola? Could it be have been about a similar sounding manufacturer, like Mostek? Because the first to come to mind would be Zilogs Z80, which was first manufactured by Mostek, as Zilog had no production line of its own. The description about being dedicated to fast interrupt handling is also exactly what the Z80 implementation was ...


There is the 6809 which has 2 Stack Pointers, SP and USP (user stack pointer). I think the 68K can manipulate the pointers such that the Stack address can be exchanged with it's other registers.
