TUTORIALS 》 Linux Kernel Tasklets | Big-Picture | vs User-Space pthreads
Linux Kernel Tasklets and Work queues are somewhat similar to user-space process threads in terms of the functionality and of course not in terms of its operation or its internal architecture. You can schedule Tasklet(s) for a registered function to run later. So typically the Interrupt top half (of the interrupt handler) performs a small amount of critical work (not to be confused with critical section), and then schedules such as a tasklet to execute later at the bottom half.
Not just that, when we say Kernel Module, its a vaguely defined term. The term "Module" (as we know) is nothing but a collection of APIs, bunch of variables and associated data-structures. Which may or may not be a plugable kernel module.
So here is my detailed multi-episode Youtube video series on Linux Kernel Tasklets, a big picture and a quick demo of my sample code (a Linux Kernel module) comprising tasklet.
I also conduct sessions/classes on Systems and Network software programming and architecture. If you are interested, click HERE for more details.
