I think this is probably/likely a kernel issue (so I've CC'd Konrad)
Setting "host_e820=1" in the guest cfg might help, but I've a feeling it
happens automagically if you specify "pci = " so perhaps not.

You might need swiotlb=force too, Konrad can probably best advise.

I'd be useful to see the actual kernel logs from both the success and
failure case. I set "XENCONSOLED_TRACE=guest"
in /etc/{sysconfig,default}/xencommon (which one you have depends on
distro) and mkdir /var/log/xen/console, after restarting xenconsoled you
should get a log file for each guest.
