The rpmh_write_batch checks to make sure the number of requests do not
exceed the max and would not exceed the value. This is ensured by the
write_batch request.
A write_batch follows an invalidate and therefore would ensure that that
the batch_cache does not overflow, but I can add a simple check, though
its unnecessary with the general use of this API.

Yes.

Hmm.. I thought it was fairly obvious that we spoof tx_done so we could
complete when the wait_count reaches 0. I will add that to the comments.

Thanks,
