Thanks a lot for this pointer. I'm surprised it didn't come up when
I searched for "swiotlb buffer is full" before.

Anyway, I set "dom0_mem=2GiB,max:4GiB" and have been hammering it
for a few hours now and haven't had any problems. I can normally
trigger the issue within a couple of seconds, so this is promising.
