dma_alloc_coherent should be calling xen_contig_mem which should turn

xen_contig_mem is called correctly, and page ownerships are set to be dom0.
However, the mmu-update that goes wrong attempts to do a MMUEXT_SET_FOREIGNDOM
to a domain with number 32753, and that fails because the owner is 0. Who is
in domain 32753, and why does dom0 wish to map these pages to a foreign domain?

Just to recap, this seems like a bug in Xen or Xenlinux. MMUEXT_SET_FOREIGNDOM seems to expect the granted pages to be owned by the grantee already, instead of the granter. I've disabled the check in Xen, and fglrx now proceeds to take down the machine when I start X. Perhaps it would be better to spend the time on the open drivers at http://r300.sourceforge.net/ , or wait for ATI to discover Xen.
