lguest: avoid sending interrupts to Guest when no activity occurs.
If we track how many buffers we've used, we can tell whether we really need to interrupt the Guest. This happens as a side effect of spurious notifications. Spurious notifications happen because it can take a while before the Host thread wakes up and sets the VRING_USED_F_NO_NOTIFY flag, and meanwhile the Guest can more notifications. A real fix would be to use wake counts, rather than a suppression flag, but the practical difference is generally in the noise: the interrupt is usually coalesced into a pending one anyway so we just save a system call which isn't clearly measurable.
