1535M is kind of an unusual amount of ram, don't you think? It shouldn't matter 
but have you tried something a bit more round, maybe at least on a
4MiB boundary?

You might want to check if there were any changes to the typical memory map in 
between 4.4 and 4.6 and review at your BIOS settings. I vaguely recall
BIOS settings related to limiting memory ranges and PCI. Maybe the old version 
of Xen was accidentally enforcing that.

We run with edd=off but no modifiers to pci.
