I just finished tested this patch in conjunction with the LIBXL_MAXMEM_CONSTANT 
removal patch. The freemem_slack zone is no longer reserved, and that aspect 
of the ballooning issue appears fixed.

There is still a problem with xl's freemem loop, but we can investigate that 
further with slack out of the picture.
