I found third (on my count) bug:

If we set up VM memory limits like this (on shutdowned machine):

xe vm-memory-static-range-set max=1048MiB min=96MiB vm=test
xe vm-memory-dynamic-range-set max=1048MiB min=96MiB vm=test
xe vm-memory-target-set vm=nonballoon target=110MiB
... and start VM. We found it take about 96Mb of RAM.

And if we starts to change it with xe vm-memory-target-set command, we
can increase, but can not cut memory down until about 230Mb (from 500 to
300 - ok, from 300 to 150 - no).

I thinks this have some relation with code in in

static unsigned long minimum_target(void)
        if (max_pfn < MB2PAGES(128))
                min_pages = MB2PAGES(8) + (max_pfn >> 1);
        else if (max_pfn < MB2PAGES(512))
                min_pages = MB2PAGES(40) + (max_pfn >> 2);
        else if (max_pfn < MB2PAGES(2048))
                min_pages = MB2PAGES(104) + (max_pfn >> 3);
                min_pages = MB2PAGES(296) + (max_pfn >> 5);

I think, those numbers are unreasonable (especially around 2Gb limit).

wBR, George.
