[Xen-users] Unable to create guest PV domain on OMAP5432

Hello all,

I'm trying to implement Xen hypervisor support on OMAP5432.I have followed the steps as in https://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Xen_ARM_with_Virtualization_Extensions/OMAP5432_uEVM for the initial setup. I'm able to see the domain 0 successfully up.

root@omap5-evm:~# /etc/init.d/xencommons start
Starting /usr/local/sbin/xenstored...
Setting domain 0 name, domid and JSON config...
Done setting up Dom0
Starting xenconsoled...
Starting QEMU as disk backend for dom0

root@omap5-evm:~# xl list
Name                                        ID   Mem VCPUs      State   Time(s)
Domain-0                                     0   512     2     r-----      11.5

I have used the below configuration file for creating a guest domain.
name = "ubuntu"

kernel = "/home/root/ubuntu/vmlinuz"
ramdisk = "/home/root/ubuntu/initrd.gz"
#bootloader = "/usr/lib/xen-4.4/bin/pygrub"

memory = 1024
vcpus = 1

device_model_version = 'qemu-xen-traditional'

disk = [


But when I try to create the guest domain using xl create command,I get the below error.
