The Foundation model is not yet completely supported, it's on my TODO

The main issue at the minute is a random guest abort during page table
setup, which goes away if I make a pointless nop hypercall early in
Linux's head.S. Sadly I can't reproduce this on the Fast Models which
makes debugging a little tricky.

It also sounds like you might be trying to use a 64 bit kernel. That
patch series did not make it for 4.3 so the stuff in the Xen master
branch won't support it. To date I've only ever tried a 32-bit dom0
running on a 64-bit Xen on the foundation model.
