Here is an update of it:

Subject: [PATCH] ring/macro: Add a new macro to detect whether there is an
overflow in requests and response.

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.

[v1: Make the macro do the ring thing, swap arguments around to
match the comment]
