[PATCH 2/4] virtio-balloon: implement balloon reset
VMware hypervisor in certain cases may release all locked pages and signal "reset" condition to the guest. In this case guest is expected to free all pages allocated by its balloon but should not notify host that pages have been released. Note that hypervisors that require guest to tell about pages being release... 19 Mar 2010 17:47

[RFC/PATCH 0/4] VMware balloon driver over virtio
Hi, VMware would like to get its Linux balloon driver merged into mainline and is considering doing it within virtio framework. The following is the initial implementation of our ballooning interface as a virtio device. It allows our hypervisor to work in tandem with virtio_balloon driver and inflate and defla... 19 Mar 2010 17:47
