mm/balloon_compaction: add vmstat counters and kpageflags bit
Always mark pages with PageBalloon even if balloon compaction is disabled and expose this mark in /proc/kpageflags as KPF_BALLOON. Also this patch adds three counters into /proc/vmstat: "balloon_inflate", "balloon_deflate" and "balloon_migrate". They accumulate balloon activity. Current size of balloon is (balloon_inflate - balloon_deflate) pages. All generic balloon code now gathered under option CONFIG_MEMORY_BALLOON. It should be selected by ballooning driver which wants use this feature. Currently virtio-balloon is the only user.
