Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] X86_64 Xorg Xfree86 issues
David, what version are you running. There's a patch in the tree that is
supposed to fix this:

# HG changeset patch
# User kaf24@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
# Node ID 0474ffc52ba79c5803a3cbe33380c555f71372dd
# Parent  dd1c092a7ee2f54f5f96ba7f090b0c6bbdfdb0fa
fix x86_64 domain0 /dev/mem issue
x86_64 miss the define of ARCH_HAS_DEV_MEM, that causes
/drivers/char/mem.c to not show low 1M memory correctly.
