Maybe - but what sort of bookkeeping?
i.e. What information does your PS want at endio time?
  [mpio->pgpath plus a success/failure flag?]
How does this interact with what hw_handler is doing?
The PS already gets called the first time there's a failure (fail_path).
Is there a better interface?
If this is purely statistical, would the functionality fit better elsewhere
(e.g. counters in the core)?
