Virtio 1.0 doesn't include a modern balloon device. But it's not a big change to support a transitional balloon device: this has the advantage of supporting existing drivers, transparently.

So all in all 32 LOC added, and 9 out of these deal with endian-ness differences.

Seems like a small cost for guests to pay for a clean spec, no?

I'm not opposed to this per se, but I'm not totally convinced of the usefulness :)
