Drivers: hv: balloon: Execute hot-add code in a separate context
Execute the hot-add operation in a separate work context. This allows us to decouple the pressure reporting activity from the "hot-add" activity. Testing has shown that this makes the guest more responsive to hot add requests. 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>
