After I applied the above two things, I still see the network error.
Autoballooning is still used in privcmd with ioctl 
IOCTL_PRIVCMD_MMAPBATCH_V2 when mapping foreign range (in order to 
deliver the domU kernel binary to domU memory).

I applied as follows:
  - put dom0_mem=256M in dom0 kernel booting arg.
  - create domU with config autoballoon="off"

AFAIK Arndale board has sysMMU but it is placed between CPU and GPU for
performance purpose. So, I think it is not be able to use it for
