use of shrinker in virtio balloon free page hinting

ATM virtio_balloon_shrinker_scan will only get registered
when deflate on oom feature bit is set.
Not sure whether that's intentional. Assuming it is:
virtio_balloon_shrinker_scan will try to locate and free
pages that are processed by host.
The above seems broken in several ways:
- count ignores the free page list completely
- if free pages are being reported, pages freed
by shrinker will just get re-allocated again
I was unable to make this part of code behave in any reasonable
way - was shrinker usage tested? What's a good way to test that?
