These four should probably be placed in a single struct and therefore a
single sg entry.  It might even be faster to place it together with the
bitmap, thus avoiding the use of indirect descriptors.

You should also test ballooning of a 64GB guest after filling in the
page cache, not just ballooning of a freshly booted 4GB guest.  This
will give you a much more sparse bitmap.  Still, the improvement in
sending PFNs to the host are impressive.
