    ms/balloon: check the number of available pages in leak balloon
    commit 37cf99e08c6fb4dcea0f9ad2b13b6daa8c76a711 upstream.
    The balloon has a special mechanism that is subscribed to the oom
    notification which leads to deflation for a fixed number of pages.
    The number is always fixed even when the balloon is fully deflated.
    But leak_balloon did not expect that the pages to deflate will be more
    than taken, and raise a "BUG" in balloon_page_dequeue when page list
    will be empty.
    So, the simplest solution would be to check that the number of releases
    pages is less or equal to the number taken pages.
