Hi!

I'm running RHEL5 2.6.18-53.1.21 xen IA64 kernel on an IA64 machine with 8GB
memory .  I can only allocate about 400M memory to dom0.  Then I applied
this patch to the kernel:
http://lists.xensource.com/archives/html/xen-ia64-devel/2007-07/msg00274.html.
Now the kernel can only recognize about 4GB memory.  Now, for the patched
kernel:

After reboot, before "xm mem-set Domain 0 8192" and "xm mem-max Domain-0
8192",

"xm list -l" shows:

(domain
    (domid 0)
    (uuid 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000)

    (cpu_weight 1.0)
    (memory 4019)
    (shadow_memory 0)
    (maxmem 4019)

The same as before.

I want Dom0 to use all 8GB memory.  Any ideas?

Thanks!
