That makes sense to me. I wonder if there was a design
decision/discussion behind that. CCing Rafael.

Yes, splitting rather overcomplicates stuff.

Absolutely.

IIRC, virtio-balloon, cmm and vmw_balloon all have the mnt/fs just for
page migration purposes. So if one can get rid of them, all should be
able to get rid of them. Essentially everything that uses the balloon
compaction framework.

That should go into separate patches then.

Are you missing similar updates to drivers/virtio/virtio_balloon.c ?

At least, there we're also using balloon_aops, so this patch shouldn't
compile.


Skimming over it, nothing else jumped at me.
