Resolve VIRTIO-126: balloon: add VIRTIO_BALLOON_F_DEFLATE_ON_OOM

Should the TC accept changes listed in the description to resolve issue VIRTIO-126, for inclusion in specification version(s) "virtio 1.0 cs03", and future versions of the specification?

Please vote Yes if you agree with all of the following.
If you disagree, please vote No.
If you don't have an opinion, please vote Abstain.

I move that:
The TC agrees to resolve the following specification issue:
VIRTIO-126: balloon: add VIRTIO_BALLOON_F_DEFLATE_ON_OOM
--------------------------------------
Linux gained
VIRTIO_BALLOON_F_DEFLATE_ON_OOM
which means that guest can deflate balloon
at any time: host value is merely a hint.


--------------------------------------

The TC accepts the following proposed changes to the specification:
--------------------------------------
mid.gmane.org/1430305433-13261-1-git-send-email-mst@redhat.com

[PATCH v2] balloon: document deflate on oom

Document the new option, and also clarify behaviour without it.

In particular, the actual field is not the actual number of pages in the
balloon as driver might do inflate followed by deflate.

Also, device isn't always driven by interrupts, driver can inflate/deflate in
response to e.g. memory compaction.

--------------------------------------

The TC agrees to include the above change(s) in specification version(s) "virtio 1.0 cs03", and future versions of the
specification.

--------------------------------------

Reminder: A Voting Member must be active in a TC to maintain voting rights. As
the Virtio TC has adopted a standing rule to conduct business only by
electronic ballot, without Meetings, a Voting Member who fails to cast a ballot
in two consecutive Work Product Ballots loses his or her voting rights at the
close of the second ballot missed.
