Applying the diff between v3 and v4 to Xen-4.2 and 4.1 caused dom0 to
GPF on boot.

It turns out that an error is shown:

 Xen warning: dom0 kernel broken ELF: program segments total to more
than the input image size

Which might suggest which change in the set is broken.

However, there is a bug in Xen in so far as it should not try to start
executing dom0 if it failed to load.
