In Dom0:

  xenstore-ls -f /local/domain/$guest_domid

and paste it here.

First observation is that the log message starts with d1v0, which means
domain 1 vcpu 0, so Dom0 is irrelevant in that case.

The guest kernel command line looks normal.

You can also verify if your guest is trying to balloon in memory by
looking at sysfs knobs.

According to Linux kernel documentation, the relevant knobs live under

Yes, this would be helpful for identifying the issue.
