Right, thanks, will add __free_page(page) here.

Essentially,
tell_host_sgs()-->send_balloon_page_sg()-->add_one_sg()-->virtqueue_add_inbuf(
, , num=1 ,,GFP_KERNEL)
won't need any memory allocation, because we always add one sg (i.e.
num=1) each time. That memory
allocation option is only used when multiple sgs are added (i.e. num >
1) and the implementation inside virtqueue_add_inbuf
need allocation of indirect descriptor table.

We could also add some comments above the function to explain a little
about this if necessary.

Yes, will make it:

if (xb_set_page(vb, page, &pfn_min, &pfn_max) < 0) {
balloon_page_enqueue(..., page);
break;
}

OK. Since the preload() doesn't need too much memory (< 4K in total),
how about GFP_NOWAIT here?


Best,
Wei
