I started looking at it when Bharata submitted a patch trying to fix the
issue for CPUs, but got side tracked by other things. I suspect that
this underflow has actually been an issue for quite some time, and we
are just now becoming aware of it thanks to the recount_t patchset being
merged. I'll look into it again this week.
