    SubjectPurpose of [start|end]_bh_atomic?
    Hi everybody,

    What is the exact purpose of start_bh_atomic() and end_bh_atomic()?
    Reading the source, I can see that some drivers use these functions, but I
    can't see how it is related to bottom half handlers.

    Could anyone enlighten me?

    Thanks in advance,
    Best regards,
