Drivers: hv: balloon: Fix a bug in the hot-add code
As we hot-add 128 MB chunks of memory, we wait to ensure that the memory is onlined before attempting to hot-add the next chunk. If the udev rule for memory hot-add is not executed within the allowed time, we would rollback the state and abort further hot-add. Since the hot-add has succeeded and the only failure is that the memory is not onlined within the allowed time, we should not be rolling back the state. Fix this bug. Signed-off-by: K. Y. Srinivasan <kys@microsoft.com> Cc: Stable <stable@vger.kernel.org> Acked-by: Jason Wang <jasowang@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
