Thread-topic: xm mem-set causes kernel panic
When I boot the ES7000 with 32 GB of RAM, dom0 is allocated almost all of it.  
I issued an xm mem-set 0 512 command to decrease dom0's memory to 512 MB.  
Using xentop, I see the amount of memory allocated to dom0 slowly decrease.  
The kernel panic occurs when dom0's memory is around 1 GB.  The serial console 
output is attached.  Using SLES10 Beta 11 upgraded to xen changeset 9903.
