   Soft interrupts are used as callbacks for hard interrupts.  Since a
   soft interrupt is always registered from a hard interrupt routine,
   it is always blocked at the time it is registered.

What about cases where one soft interrupt needs to trigger another
soft interrupt?  For example: when running from IPL_SOFTSERIAL, you
call the ppp line discipline, and it needs to post an IPL_SOFTNET?
