ring_buffer__pool() is assumed to not return until all the enqueued
messages are consumed. That's the requirement for the "adaptive"
notification scheme to work properly. So this will break that and
cause the next ring_buffer__pool() to never wake up.

We could use __u64 internally and then cap it to INT_MAX on return
maybe? But honestly, this sounds like an artificial corner case, if
you are producing data faster than you can consume it and it goes
beyond INT_MAX, something is seriously broken in your application and
you have more important things to handle :)
