This is working with kernel available on pages, but is not working with kernel 2.6.29. Comparing both kernels I found code for returning unused memory to hypervisor is missing. Following patch add this functionality to 2.6.29 kernel.

Are you planning on submitting a revised patch along the lines I suggested?
