This does not work for me. On a production machine I want to run 10 user
domain.  I can bring up 8 without problems. Up for months. Whenever I bring up
a ninth I get these errors. dom0_mem in kernel opts is 1G, dom0-min-mem is 1024
Whenever the memory squeezes happen my network functionality really breaks. Is
there a fix that *will* work?
