Subject: [PATCH 0/4] Fix use after free in HPT resizing code and related minor improvements

It is possible to trigger use after free during HPT resize
causing host kernel to crash. More details and analysis of
the problem can be found in change with corresponding subject
(KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Fix use after free in case of multiple
resize requests).

We need some changes to prepare for the fix, especially
make ->error in HPT resize instance single point for
tracking allocation state, improve kvmppc_allocate_hpt()
and kvmppc_free_hpt() so they can be used more safely.

See individual commit description message to get more
information on changes presented.
