    Description

      The getMore path uses the AutoGetCollectionForReadCommand RAII helper, which on destruction updates Top and the appropriate per-collection latency histogram. It updates the stats by

      1. bumping the number of recorded reads, and
      2. recording the wall clock time between construction and destruction of the RAII object.

      For getMore on awaitData cursors, however, we release the AutoGetCollectionForReadCommand while blocking. This is to ensure that we do not hold collection locks while sleeping on a condition variable for potentially long periods of time. After waking up, the AutoGetCollectionForReadCommand is reacquired. The result is that we double-count each getMore operation in the Top diagnostic output. Furthermore, the time spent blocking for awaitData is not recorded. This is inconsistent with the global operation latency histogram reported by serverStatus(), which incorporates time spent blocking for awaitData.
