Re: [Xen-users] Unable to boot Xen on Hikey

I tried RELEASE-4.9.0 and RELEASE-4.8.0 and RELEASE-4.7.3. None of them boots. There were little differences. Xen 4.8 printed one line more and stopped:
(XEN) Freed 268kB init memory.
(XEN) Hardware Dom0 shutdown: rebooting machine
Xen 4.9 rebooted after it failed to boot.

Do you think the issue is with the Xen version?

This is how I build Xen:
cd xen/xen
export CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu-
export ARCH=arm64
export XEN_TARGET_ARCH=arm64
make defconfig
make -j8

Should I make specific config for HiKey?

And in this link: https://lists.gt.net/xen/devel/433472, they could boot the system by disabling the USB_DWC2 in the kernel. I tried modifying the .config file directly and disabling the ones related to USB_DWC2  (commenting the line out) but when I tried rebuilding the kernel it restarted generating the .config file. So I couldn't apply this comment.

Why use 4.7.0-rc4? First of all 4.7 is quite old, and then why pick a
release candidate and not 4.7.3 if you really need to use 4.7?
