there is something, what i don't understand.

I have in my DomU config:

memory = "128"
maxmem = "1024"

tsles:~ # cat /proc/xen/balloon 
Current allocation:   237568 kB
Requested target:     237568 kB
Minimum target:       237568 kB
Maximum target:      1048576 kB
Low-mem balloon:      804352 kB
High-mem balloon:          0 kB
Driver pages:           1024 kB
Xen hard limit:          ??? kB

I can set the memory up to 1024M, but if i set the memory to 64M, than i
won't remove the memory in the guest, but xm list shows:

tsles  6    64    1     -b----     24.2

 --long output:

(maxmem 1024)
(memory 64)
(shadow_memory 0)

so, what is the reason?
