It seems a cpu running there could still be interrupted (by an interrupt)
and re-enter this section ?

If yes, u64_stats_update_begin() and u64_stats_update_end() are unsafe (on 32bit arches)

u64_stats_update_{begin|end}() assume proper locking, since they use a simple increment.

But then, even on 64bit arches, the stats->{cnt|nsecs} updates are unsafe ?
