Attached patch should fix it.  Patch survived a quick smoke test on kvm
so far, need to do some more testing tomorrow.  Can you give it a spin
on xen?

thanks,

Thanks. Unfortunately, it does not work :(.

In this patch, max_ram_below_4g is set before the call to xen_ram_init()
and xen_ram_init read it back (via object_property_get_int()).  So, in
xen_ram_init, user_lowmem is not 0.

Thanks,

Subject: [PATCH] xen: fix ram init regression

Commit "8156d48 pc: allow raising low memory via max-ram-below-4g
option" causes a regression on xen, because it uses a different
memory split.

This patch initializes max-ram-below-4g to zero and leaves the
initialization to the memory initialization functions.  That way
they can pick different default values (max-ram-below-4g is zero
still) or use the user supplied value (max-ram-below-4g is non-zero).
