Yes. I will.
BTW we are working on generic scalable resource counter which is
based on percpu counters and lockless on fast-paths.
Resource counter examples: quota limits, bean-counters, etc.
The core idea in most situations resource has three main points:
zero, soft-barrier, hard-barrier where exact accuracy is required.

Unfortunately preempt_debug was disabled on my testing hosts too.
