SubjectRE: [PATCH V3 13/14] Drivers: hv: vmbus: On write cleanup the logic to interrupt the host
Date
Please don't add name/date information into comments.
This kind of meta data belongs in the commit message only.

My philosophy is that comments should be reserved for explain the semantics of the code, not the history.

+ *
+ * KYS: Oct. 30, 2016:
+ * It looks like Windows hosts have logic to deal with DOS attacks that
+ * can be triggered if it receives interrupts when it is not expecting
+ * the interrupt. The host expects interrupts only when the ring
+ * transitions from empty to non-empty (or full to non full on the
+ guest
+ * to host ring).
+ * So, base the signaling decision solely on the ring state until the
+ * host logic is fixed.
