Okay, I checked in a command-line option for Xen:

 badpage=<page number>[,<page number>]*
          Specify a list of pages not to be allocated for use 
          because they contain bad bytes. For example, if your
          memory tester says that byte 0x12345678 is bad, you would
          place 'badpage=0x12345' on Xen's command line (i.e., the
          last three digits of the byte address are not included!).
