Here "low" and "high" are u32 and refer to the upper and lower halves
of the u64 returned value. For a 4-byte STATS_TYPE_PORT value, the
second read refers to the bits 31:16, thus belongs to (the upper half
of) the lower half of the 64-bit returned value, i.e. "low".

The current return value is correct, as well as your patch.


Thanks,
Vivien
