How about just do something like vhost:

static u16 vhost_idx_diff(struct vhost_virtqueue *vq, u16 old, u16 new)
{
     if (new > old)
         return new - old;
     return  (new + vq->num - old);
}

static bool vhost_vring_packed_need_event(struct vhost_virtqueue *vq,
                       __u16 event_off, __u16 new,
                       __u16 old)
{
     return (__u16)(vhost_idx_diff(vq, new, event_off) - 1) <
            (__u16)vhost_idx_diff(vq, new, old);
}

?
