Subject: hv_balloon: don't check for memhp_auto_online manually

We get the MEM_ONLINE notifier call if memory is added right from the
kernel via add_memory() or later from user space.

Let's get rid of the "ha_waiting" flag - the wait event has an inbuilt
mechanism (->done) for that.  Initialize the wait event only once and
reinitialize before adding memory.  Unconditionally call complete() and

If there are no waiters, complete() will only increment ->done - which
will be reset by reinit_completion().  If complete() has already been
called, wait_for_completion_timeout() will not wait.

There is still the chance for a small race between concurrent
reinit_completion() and complete().  If complete() wins, we would not wait
- which is tolerable (and the race exists in current code as well).

Note: We only wait for "some" memory to get onlined, which seems to be
      good enough for now.
