Subject: IRQ sharing




I installed two RealTek PCI network cards in a firewall box.
Both cards are using IRQ 10.
It is working.
I don't understand how irq sharing works.
I had read something about optional support to irq sharing with serial
ports.
But with PCI bus, is it standard? Does it impact performance?
I didn't find any information in pci-howto. Can anybody give some hints?

Thanks.
