Re: [Xen-devel] Xen 64 but supported memory limit

SLE11 in its current shape is successfully running on a 1Tb system (and the
hypervisor has been validated to work fine with 1Tb for much longer, it was
really the Dom0 kernel that had issues when not passing a dom0_mem=

And if anyone cares, I've got a pretty simple patch to bump the limit to 5Tb.
Going beyond that will very likely require more extensive changes.

The current limit is theoretically 1TB, but that should be easily
increasible. I think the largest tested memory configuration is 256GB. Max
per VM I think may actually be limited only by available memory.
