Mmmm, that's smaller than mine and should load without problems:

# du /boot/kernel/kernel
21537   /boot/kernel/kernel

I think the problem might be that your BIOS is not correctly reporting 
the extended memory size, or that the loader is not fetching it 
properly. Can you try the following patch to see which values you get? 
On one of my boxes that is able to load FreeBSD/Xen I get:

bios_extmem: 0xd75d8000 memtop_copyin: 0xd76d8000 memtop: 0xd76d8000

You can apply the patch on top of the previous one, or standalone, as 
you wish.
