Bug description:
  The following fix has been submitted upstream, but has high enough
  severity that we would like early inclusion into the Ubuntu kernel.
  Please consider for wily, vivid, and trusty (and the HWE kernels for
  the same).

  Patch follows:

  Currently we have two policies for deciding when to signal the host:
  One based on the ring buffer state and the other based on what the VMBUS 
client driver wants to do. Consider the case when the client wants to 
explicitly control when to signal the host. In this case, if the client were to 
defer signaling, we will not be able to signal the host subsequently when the 
client does want to signal since the ring buffer state will prevent the 
signaling. Implement logic to have only one signaling policy in force for a 
given channel.
