I don't get it, sorry.

+               add_wait_queue(&vb->config_change, &wait);
+               for (;;) {
+                       if ((diff = towards_target(vb)) != 0 ||
+                           vb->need_stats_update ||

+                               break;
+                       wait_woken(&wait, TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE, 
MAX_SCHEDULE_TIMEOUT);
+               }
+               remove_wait_queue(&vb->config_change, &wait);

Seems to check the condition before waiting.

The issue is more likely with this patch:

I know we have same thing on restore, but it seems bogus
there as well:
        if (towards_target(vb))
                virtballoon_changed(vdev);
        update_balloon_size(vb);

makes no sense because virtballoon_changed merely queues
the work.
