According to my notes, I was using a machine with 2GB of RAM, and
started domain 0 with 48000KB and all the other domains with
15000KB. There was probably enough spare RAM to start a few more,
but I'd only created 129 root file systems, so didn't try.

Xen currently reserves quite a bit of RAM for itself, rather more
than is strictly needs for most configurations, but it hasn't
been a priority to fix it.
