  Fixed in CVS:

paphio:~/libvirt/src -> grep kb_per_pages xen_internal.c
    static int kb_per_pages = 0;
    if (kb_per_pages == 0) {
        kb_per_pages = sysconf(_SC_PAGESIZE) / 1024;
        if (kb_per_pages <= 0)
            kb_per_pages = 4;
    info->memory = XEN_GETDOMAININFO_TOT_PAGES(dominfo) * kb_per_pages;
    info->maxMem = XEN_GETDOMAININFO_MAX_PAGES(dominfo) * kb_per_pages;
paphio:~/libvirt/src ->

if you're a developper, use the CVS version or the CVS snapshots, it helps :-)

  virDomainGetMaxMemory version from xen_internals.c had to be fixed too
I forgot about that one, for xenHypervisorSetMaxMemory() it's fine since
the hypercall takes directly the size in kilobytes:

      uint64_t max_memkb;

  thanks for raising this again though, there was still a bug around :-)
