Thanks for your reply.

[Wang, Yipeng] I didn't mean to expose the private fields. But only the 
Type. For example, rte_hash does not expose its private fields to users.
One can change the fields without changing API.

[Wang, Yipeng] I mean the extra overhead of _init function which does the
Calculation.  For iterate_conflict_entries, since it does not need
Total_entries, _init will cost extra cycles for the calculation, especially in my
imaginary use cases, one may call _init multiple times on the same state to iterate
different keys. I guess your application is not sensitive to this overhead,
So I think I am OK with current implementation.
