True. Just so I understand, was the point of the original commit (which has now been reverted) to run tcpip_callbacks on the calling thread for the core locking case?
I do wonder if the current system (using the TCP/IP thread for callbacks) would be better for an SMP system where another thread could complete the callback in parallel once the thread posting the callback releases the core lock.
