[PATCH 18/75] xen/io/ring.h: new macro to detect whether there are too many requests on the ring

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Wed Aug 14 2013 - 06:57:12 EST -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Jan Beulich <jbeulich@xxxxxxxx>

commit 8d9256906a97c24e97e016482b9be06ea2532b05 upstream.

Backends may need to protect themselves against an insane number of
produced requests stored by a frontend, in case they iterate over
requests until reaching the req_prod value. There can't be more
requests on the ring than the difference between produced requests
and produced (but possibly not yet published) responses.

This is a more strict alternative to a patch previously posted by
Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk <konrad.wilk@xxxxxxxxxx>.
