Subject[PATCH 5.4 256/309] virtio-balloon: Fix memory leak when unloading while hinting is in progress
Date
From: David Hildenbrand <david@redhat.com>

commit 6c22dc61c76b7e7d355f1697ba0ecf26d1334ba6 upstream.

When unloading the driver while hinting is in progress, we will not
release the free page blocks back to MM, resulting in a memory leak.

Fixes: 86a559787e6f ("virtio-balloon: VIRTIO_BALLOON_F_FREE_PAGE_HINT")
