Noob question. Why for SOFTIRQs we do sofirq_count() & *SOFTIRQ_OFFSET*? It
seems we're in-softirq only if the count is odd numbered.

/me tries to dig more

Hmm could it be because the softirq count is actually 1 bit and the rest is
for SOFTIRQ_DISABLE_OFFSET (BH disabled)?

IOW, 1 bit is for we're in softirq context, and the remaining 7 bits are to
count BH disable nesting, right?

I guess this would make sense; we don't nest softirqs processing AFAIK. But
I could be misreading the code too :-)

Shouldn't this be HARDIRQ_MASK like above?
