One way I thought we can implement tcpip_callback so that the function is not 
executed immediately for the core locking case would be to add the 
tcpip_callback_fn to a delayed queue and then execute the queued functions 
during UNLOCK_TCPIP_CORE. This would ensure the callback function is executed 
after the current core lock critical section is complete without having to 
context switch to the TCP/IP thread

One area that would benefit from this is the loopback netif output where we 
can't currently call back into the stack (for the core locking case) during the 
current output because of reentrancy problems in the TCP layer
