OK, I would have expected your last entry in the E820 to be truncated
to 15fe00000, but it is not with the max:5G parameter. Looks like
you found a bug - but I am not sure if it is the Xen hypervisor or
the E820 parsing code in Linux. Fortunatly for you, I just got my hands on 32G
machine so I can work on this. Can you remind me in a week if I you do
not see any patches from me?
