o.k. I will change as you suggest :)

Right. But rare times when I see space will beauty the code I tend to
add it. Maybe I should not :)

Because virtio_balloon use "kzalloc" for allocation and needs to be freed.
But virtio pmem uses "devm_kzalloc" which takes care of automatically deleting
the device memory when associated device is detached.
