I googled and found a similar issue is reported at:

But seems there is no follow up how the problem is fixed, how can I
fix the issue?

in my case from December: no fix found till now.
Upgraded my Gentoo to app-emulation/xen-tools-4.2.1-r1, app-emulation/xen-4.2.1-r2.

A workaround is to boot the domU without the PCI-Device in config and pass it later on. This way you can work with all the RAM you need _and_ the PCI-Device.

Still hoping for a solution in one of the next updates.

When I shutdown this domU for reboot I keep a 'ghost' in xl list

xen xen # xl list

colin                                        1  2048     3     -b----     102.3

which can be removed by killing the corresponding qemu-system-i386 process.
