Subject[PATCH v1 0/3] virtio-balloon: Fixes + switch back to OOM handler
Date
Two fixes for issues I stumbled over while working on patch #3.

Switch back to the good ol' OOM handler for VIRTIO_BALLOON_F_DEFLATE_ON_OOM
as the switch to the shrinker introduce some undesired side effects. Keep
the shrinker in place to handle VIRTIO_BALLOON_F_FREE_PAGE_HINT.
Lengthy discussion under [1].

I tested with QEMU and "deflate-on-oom=on". Works as expected. Did not
test the shrinker for VIRTIO_BALLOON_F_FREE_PAGE_HINT, as it is
hard to trigger (only when migrating a VM, and even then, it might not
trigger).
