Subject[PATCH v1 1/3] virtio-balloon: Fix memory leak when unloading while hinting is in progress
Date
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")
