Correct me if I'm wrong, but fast and slow interrupts is about splitting interrupts into two kinds - serial io is example of fast interrupt and network io is example of slow interrupt.
Sofirq in Linux is about splitting work done to serve one interrupt into two parts - minimal and very fast interrupt handler schedules task done in sofirq thread.
