But it would not. The RING_REQUEST_CONS_OVERFLOW only check that the
non-shared ring entries (rsp_prod and rsp_prod_pvt) are less than
the size of the ring (32). In other words - they check whether we want
to process more requests as we still have a back-log of responses to
deal with.

This new macro would check for the req_prod being bogus and out of
bounds. Bounds being the difference between rsp_prod and req_prod
being bigger than ring (32).
