Handling of Interrupts in thread context
I have a doubt regarding handling of interrupts in thread context.
Say, an interrupt has occurred in a kernel thread context and the interrupt handler got executed.
Will the control of execution return back to the kernel thread soon after the execution of the interrupt handler?
The interrupt handler gets executed, and if any soft irqs are pending, they are executed followed by returning the control back to the thread.
Linux Kernel Version:2.4.20-8
