Ok, so you do have a workaround for that right now - and we kind of
know that is something still amiss with the MFN calculations when

My todo list is not getting any shorter sadly so not sure when I will
get to try this out. But let me do that when I get my 32GB machine
working again.

Yeah, that really points to either the tools not liking the
MFN being too high or the hypervisor. Or the save/resume path in the
Linux kernel is failing silently and sticking in invalid MFNs
as it can't deal with higher MFNs.

In other words - need to run this to figure out.

Unless you are up for helping out by debugging the code a bit and
seeing if you can come with a fix?
