Hi Olivier,

I apologize for so long delay with reply. I simply lost it from
my view.

Many thanks for review notes. See below.

Fixed in v5

I agree that it is better to avoid here details about
behaviour of one or another array pointer is NULL.
Descriptions of corresponding parameters cover it.

Fixed in v5.

Yes, I think it is useful. Will add in v5.

Fixed in v5.

I agree that it should not be treated as an error. It is just a
special case of success when return is partially provided (just
a number of stats).

Fixed in v5.
