Subject[PATCH 2/3] xen/ring: Add a new macro to detect whether there is an overflow in requests and response.
Date
We want to be able to exit if the difference between the request
produced (what the frontend tells us) and the requests consumed
(what we have so far processed) is greater than the ring size.

If so, we should terminate the loop as the request produced
is not trusted and it means it is bogus.
