Thanks for your review.

See, i need this interface mainly for development/debug purposes, to help
troubleshot problems and to give insights to what device "is doing".

Trace points are great but not effective in high load.
QMP as i see it, and correct me if i'm wrong, is used to report management
events etc and also here, is not effective in high load.

I choose this interface as it is interactive, i.e. whenever i need the info
i trigger 'info pvrdmastats' command from the monitor console.

During my research i notice that some devices (or families) have nice user
interface via virsh (blkstat, ifstat, memstat etc). Is it the preferred way
for non-devel/debug purposes?

If this is the correct method for this purpose then let me know and i'll
update the git log message accordingly.
