rstat doesn't currently have a flush throttling mechanism cuz it doens't
expect readers to be super hot but adding one should be pretty easy - e.g.
it can just keep track of the number of updates on this cpu since the last
flush and then flush iff the it's above a certain threshold. Shouldn't be
too difficult to match or exceed the performance and error characteristics
of the existing code.
