I don't think it should. But I now notice I should have looked at the
logs of these tests:

xc: info: Saving domain 2, type x86 HVM
xc: error: Unable to obtain the guest p2m size (1 = Operation not permitted): 
Internal error
xc: error: Save failed (1 = Operation not permitted): Internal error

which looks suspiciously similar to the issue Jürgen's d21121685fac
("tools/libs/guest: fix save and restore of pv domains after 32-bit
de-support") took care of, just that here we're dealing with a HVM
guest. I'll have to go inspect what exactly the library is doing there,
and hence where in Xen the -EPERM may be coming from all of the
sudden (and only for OVMF).

Of course the behavior you describe above may play into this, since
aiui this might lead to an excessively large p2m (depending what
exactly you mean with "as high as possible").

I don't think I see a force push justified just yet.
