OK, these counts look like they are going negative: 4 billion is where
unsigned integers wrap round to if you try to decrement them below
zero.  I can't tell from this whether it's likely to be a kernel
accounting problem or just sar misinterpreting things, so could you
please open a bugzilla report for this?

Thanks,
