Re: [Xen-devel] xen_guest_init() failed

Thanks a lot, Julien!

0xb0000000-0xb0020000 region points to RAM area in R-Car H2 SoC.
I've changed grant-table region to 0xc0000000-0xc0020000, that is
reserved area, and now everything works fine.

I'm sorry for my opaqueness and thanks again for your help.
Best regards.
