Daemon to balance interrupts across multiple CPUs, which can lead to
better performance and IO balance on SMP systems. This package is
especially useful on systems with multi-core processors, as interrupts
will typically only be serviced by the first core.
Note: irqbalance is not useful if you don't have more than one core
or socket.
