I believe accepted good practice isn't to dynamically allocate your Dom0 memory 
- even though it's the default. AIUI, certain memory structures are allocated 
at boot time and sized according to memory available and so you end up with a 
suboptimal set of structures when Dom0 balloons down.
You can specify Dom0 memory through a boot time option (dom0_mem) to Xen - then 
Dom0 starts with a memory allocation that's more appropriate to what it'll need.
