I can now make a guest panic if I assign 4GB or more RAM.
What are the memory params you are using in this case ?
I've not made any changes on the host such as reserving memory.
I'm starting the VM like so:
Ah - that actually won't work. There has to be space for PCI MMIO
decode below 4GB, so it's usually best to use up to say 2 or 3GB of RAM
below the 4GB mark, leaving 1GB for PCI decode, and then put the
remainder of your memory above 4G e.g. for 4GB total RAM, and using 2GB
-m 2048 -M 2048
and an example 8G system:
-m 2048 -M 6144
We should really error out on values too large for the '-m' parameter.
