Hi Keir, thanks for helping.
I'm not using shadow tables.  Before the Xen crash, Xen kills both of my
domUs via arch/x86/mm.c line 614.  Apparently my domUs are misbehaving
by not explicitly unmapping granted pages.  Because of the
domain_crash() call in mm.c, no form of put_page() is ever called for
the mapping.  Is this info helpful?

Let's say domain A maps pages belonging to domain B (implying that B
granted access to A).

If B crashes then the domain should stick around as a zombie until all
mappings of its pages by other domains have gone away. This should mean
that if A crashes or dies and calls gnttab_release_mappings(), it should
not be possible for B to have disappeared at that point, and
find_domain_by_id() should succeed.

Neither of your domains are running on shadow page tables, are they?
