[Xen-devel] [PATCH] xen/balloon: Subtract from xen_released_pages the count that is populated.

We did not take into account that xen_released_pages would be
used outside the initial E820 parsing code. As such we would
not subtract from xen_released_pages the count of pages
that we had populated back. Instead we just did a simple
extra_pages = released - populated calculation.

However the balloon worker uses xen_released_pages to figure
out how many more pages it can balloon up to and not having
the proper numbers we would balloon more than we should have.

This fixes errors such as:

(XEN) memory.c:133:d0 Could not allocate order=0 extent: id=0 memflags=0 (51 of 
during bootup and
free_memory            : 0

where the free_memory should be 128.
