Note that the patch above requires the following reverted patch to be applied
(or the revert reverted):

commit 87682e466f75198056810381c87d2a3a4338dc5c
Author: Steve Conklin <sconklin at canonical.com>
Date:   Thu May 26 17:30:21 2011 -0500

    Revert "xen: set max_pfn_mapped to the last pfn mapped"

    This reverts commit 5490ee42c5725aa3e32634c19f70913e0e634d0c

Not sure, do we already have a bug report for tracking this (like things to keep
in mind when reverted stuff needs to be re-activated)?
