Subject[PATCH 3.16 139/346] balloon: check the number of available pages in leak balloon
3.16.39-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Konstantin Neumoin <kneumoin@virtuozzo.com>

commit 37cf99e08c6fb4dcea0f9ad2b13b6daa8c76a711 upstream.

The balloon has a special mechanism that is subscribed to the oom
notification which leads to deflation for a fixed number of pages.
The number is always fixed even when the balloon is fully deflated.
But leak_balloon did not expect that the pages to deflate will be more
than taken, and raise a "BUG" in balloon_page_dequeue when page list
will be empty.

So, the simplest solution would be to check that the number of releases
pages is less or equal to the number taken pages.
