Drivers: hv: balloon: Prevent the host from ballooning the guest too low
Based on the amount of memory being managed set a floor on how low the guest can be ballooned. Signed-off-by: K. Y. Srinivasan <kys@microsoft.com> Reviewed-by: Haiyang Zhang <haiyangz@microsoft.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
