I think yes.
If I am not wrong then in a case where page reporting setup fails for some
reason and at a later point the user wants to re-enable it then for that balloon
driver has to be reloaded.
Which would mean re-negotiation of the feature bit.

True.
I think this should be replaced with something like (page_reporting_flag &&
virtio_has_feature(vb->vdev, VIRTIO_BALLOON_F_REPORTING)).

Why is that?
I think both the checks should be present here as we need both the conditions to
be true to enable page reporting.
However, the order should be reversed because of the reason you mentioned earlier.

Yes.
I should check both feature bit and module parameter here.
