SubjectRe: [PATCH v3] Drivers: hv: vmbus: Expose counters for interrupts and full conditions

intr_in_full is u64, which is not the same as unsigned long long.
to be correct you need a cast here.

Adding more fields changes cache layout which can cause
additional cache miss in the hot path.

Discussion on kernel mailing list. Recommends against putting bool
in structures since that pads to full sizeof(int). Could this be
part of a bitfield?

If this is called often, the additional locking will impact performance.

Could I propose another alternative.

It might be more useful to count the guest to host interaction events
rather than the ring buffer.

For example the number of calls to:
vmbus_set_event which means host exit call
vmbus_setevent fastpath using sync_set_bit
calls to rinbuffer_write that returned -EAGAIN

These would require less locking, reuse existing code paths
and not require additional state.
