The  floor was chosen because we found the system to be unreliable

useful to have even if the value picked is a different one.

192MB is on the high side isn't it?

We have a  couple of bugs in our bugzilla where dom0 could not be
booted with memory set to 128 MB. I don't know what the right floor is,
but it has to be more than 128M.

Under what circumstances was that the case, do you
know? It doesn't seem like the normal default case,
we've certainly not run into that one...
