[PATCH v9 04/15] s390x: protvirt: Inhibit balloon when switching to prot

From: Janosch Frank
Subject: [PATCH v9 04/15] s390x: protvirt: Inhibit balloon when switching to protected mode
Date: Wed, 11 Mar 2020 09:21:40 -0400

Ballooning in protected VMs can only be done when the guest shares the
pages it gives to the host. If pages are not shared, the integrity
checks will fail once those pages have been altered and are given back
to the guest.

As we currently do not yet have a solution for this we will continue
like this:

1. We block ballooning now in QEMU (with this patch)

2. Later we will provide a change to virtio that removes the blocker
and adds VIRTIO_F_IOMMU_PLATFORM automatically by QEMU when doing the
protvirt switch. This is ok as the guest balloon driver will reject to
work with the IOMMU change

3. Later we can fix the guest balloon driver to accept the IOMMU
feature bit and correctly exercise sharing and unsharing of balloon
