    It knows what network devices are named, and looks for those keys
    in /proc/interrupts. Anything names 'ethN' will not be moved and
    if you name them on a per-queue basis properly (ie. 'ethN-RX1' etc.)
    it will flat distribute those interrupts amongst the cpus in the

    So if you're doing "silly stuff" and naming your devices by some other
    convention, you would end up defeating the detations built into

    Actually, let's not even guess, go check out the sources of the
    irqbalanced running on your system and make sure it has the network
    device logic in it. :-)
