Interrupt Management Under Linux
Interrupt handling is a fundamental part of the Linux kernel. Most of the kernel’s functionality, in particular the parts of interest to embedded developers, in some way involve interrupt handling.
This paper describes the most important concepts related to the Linux kernel’s interrupt handling mechanisms. These concepts include the relevant code and data structures. Sample code from Linux kernel version 2.6.12 is also provided.
