Question related to this item specifically :)

Do you want to individually send 4000 - 16000 (or more) TX stop / start
events per second to userspace? :) At some point Heisenburg defeats
low latency :)

If not (and I hope not), perhaps also look into the net stack statistics
already kept (or add more sampling stats if necessary), and instead
trigger events based on sampling those statistics.
