I've got other question, and maybe possible improvements.

When QEMU build the ACPI tables, it also initialize some MemoryRegion,
which use more guest memory. Do you know if those regions are used with
your patch series on Xen? Otherwise, we could try to avoid their
creation with this:
In xenfv_machine_options()
m->rom_file_has_mr = false;
(setting this in xen_hvm_init() would probably be better, but I havn't

If this is possible, libxl would not need to allocate more memory for
the guest (dm_acpi_size).
