[PATCH] xen-blkback: use balloon pages for persistent grants

From: Roger Pau Monne
Date: Thu Feb 14 2013 - 05:15:43 EST

With current persistent grants implementation we are not freeing the
persistent grants after we disconnect the device. Since grant map
operations change the mfn of the allocated page, and we can no longer
pass it to __free_page without setting the mfn to a sane value, use
balloon grant pages instead, as the gntdev device does.
