Having ssidref as a required parameter to domain_create is an ugly nuisance for the 99.9% of people who don't care a jot about it. I think a separate one-time-only hypercall to set the ssidref on a newly created domain would be neater? Or at least, surely the sane default value for an integer ssidref is zero, not fffffffff?

Changing the following line makes a temporary fix:

 gopts.var('ssidref', val='SSIDREF',
-          fn=set_u32, default=0xfffffff,
           use="Security Identifier.")
gopts.var('ssidref', val='SSIDREF',
+          fn=set_u32, default=0xffff,
          use="Security Identifier.")
