The driver is expected to be used on VMware platform - mainly ESX.
Originally we tried to converge with KVM and use virtio and
stock virtio_balloon driver but Avi mentioned that our code emulating
virtqueue was more than balloon code itself and thus using virtio did
not make nuch sense.

Yeah. If we wanted commonality, we could make a balloon_core.c that contains the common code. IMO that's premature, but perhaps there's some meat there (like suspend/resume support and /proc//sys interface).

error compiling committee.c: too many arguments to function
