>From what I can tell, calling ->recvfrom when there is no work to do
is a normal part of operation. This is the only way svc_recv can
tell when there is no more data ready to receive on the transport.

Neither the TCP nor the UDP transport implementations have a
"starve" metric.

The cost of receive starvation accounting is bumping an atomic, which
results in extra (IMO unnecessary) bus traffic between CPU sockets,
while holding a spin lock.
