When I start up a 32-bit PV guest with a pair of passthrough
NIC ports, I am seeing the following error:
(XEN) grant_table.c:1121:d1 Expanding dom (1) grant table
from (4) to (16) frames.

searches have shown that the problem has been observed by others, usually when
running 32-bit guests with passthrough NICs. In some instances the error
was observed when dom0 was mapping shared RX ring buffers.
Any ideas as to where something like this might be
