This patch is quite hard to parse, please work on improving its
readability. Perhaps start by splitting changes to the stats from
hypervisor from the stats to hypervisor.

Just out of curiosity - what's the use for the stats reported by VM to
the hypervisor?

Most of these look like a perfect match for members of struct
rtnl_link_stats64. Please use the standard stats to report the errors,
wherever possible.

I don't quite get why you need the knob to disable some statistics.
Please remove or explain this in the cover letter. Looks unnecessary.

How often is this printed?
