This looks correct but I've noticed we also have

/* Refuse to balloon below the floor, keep the 2M granularity. */
if (avail_pages < num_pages || avail_pages - num_pages < floor) {
pr_warn("Balloon request will be partially fulfilled. %s\n",
avail_pages < num_pages ? "Not enough memory." :
"Balloon floor reached.");

num_pages = avail_pages > floor ? (avail_pages - floor) : 0;
num_pages -= num_pages % PAGES_IN_2M;
}

in balloon_up(). If 2M granularity is not guaranteed in the first place
we can't keep it.

Also, when alloc_balloon_pages() is called with 2M alloc_unit and the
region is not 2M aligned, it will return someething < num_pages, the
next condition, however, only checks for 0:

if (alloc_unit != 1 && num_ballooned == 0) {
alloc_unit = 1;
continue;
}

we will proceed to sending a response to server and try doing next
iteration by calling alloc_balloon_pages() with 2M alloc_unit again,
this will finally return 0 and we will switch to 4k. I think we can
optimize this to:

if (alloc_unit != 1 && num_ballooned != num_pages) {
alloc_unit = 1;
continue;
}
