"bottom half" vs "softirq"
 
Hi,
I read somewhere, that "the network stack is no longer a bottom half, but a softirq". I thought bottom halves and softirqs where the same.:confused:

It says that the difference is that they- softirqs- may run on more than one CPU simultaneously. Is this the difference?
