/*
 * An errseq_t is a way of recording errors in one place, and allowing any
 * number of "subscribers" to tell whether it has changed since a previous
 * point where it was sampled.
 *
 * It's implemented as an unsigned 32-bit value. The low order bits are
 * designated to hold an error code (between 0 and -MAX_ERRNO). The upper bits
 * are used as a counter. This is done with atomics instead of locking so that
 * these functions can be called from any context.
 *
 * The general idea is for consumers to sample an errseq_t value. That value
 * can later be used to tell whether any new errors have occurred since that
 * sampling was done.
 *
 * Note that there is a risk of collisions if new errors are being recorded
 * frequently, since we have so few bits to use as a counter.
 *
 * To mitigate this, one bit is used as a flag to tell whether the value has
 * been sampled since a new value was recorded. That allows us to avoid bumping
 * the counter if no one has sampled it since the last time an error was
 * recorded.
 *
 * A new errseq_t should always be zeroed out.  A errseq_t value of all zeroes
 * is the special (but common) case where there has never been an error. An all
 * zero value thus serves as the "epoch" if one wishes to know whether there
 * has ever been an error set since it was first initialized.
