this patch makes Xen boot with the default dom0_mem value when the given
value exceeds available memory, instead Xen panics and reboots.

Administrators have a chance to correct dom0_mem (and other parameters
if necessary) after Xen is up with default, seeing the warning message.

Tested by booting Domain-0.
