RE: [Xen-devel] [PATCH][Take 3] Sysfs Interface for balloon driver

Hi, John.

I think that the capital 'B' means Bytes and the small 'b' means bit, usually.
Similarly, the capital 'K' means binary prefix (power of 2, namely power of 
and the small 'k' means SI prefixes (power of 10, namely power of 1000).
(Sorry, I mistake. In patch, I wrote in reverse.)

In formal (ICE), it is not classified by the capital or the small letters, but 
is classified
by adding the character 'i' (ex. Ki is 'Kilobinary', called 'Kibi'.).
So, the addition of character 'i' will be appropriate.
(In this time, 'KiB' is a appropriate.)
