Ok, no problem. I'll mark the link-status patch rejected in Patchwork.

I've just sent the Keepalive patchset, patch #3 is of interest regarding this discussion:

It adds a function to the API for collecting xstats, meaning it doesn't pollute the rte_eth_xstats_get() output. I'm interested to hear the communities view of this approach.
