Description Jeremy Katz 2006-02-07 22:51:15 CST
If you set up an HVM guest with video support, the amount of memory requested
by
xend doesn't take into account the video memory.  The device model then
requests
more memory.  Which, if you're counting on auto-ballooning of dom0, means that
you don't have sufficient memory.

This should probably get accounted for in getDomainMemory so that we do all of
the memory reservation and ballooning from xend.
