This appears to be an indicator of a bigger issue unless
there is some code somewhere I am missing.
Can "xl create" deal with ballooning memory from dom0, as is
done in the free() method in tools/python/xen/xend/balloon.py?
If not, doesn't that mean that xl is useless on systems
where dom0_mem= isn't specified as a boot option?
Since tmem leverages this method to recover freeable
memory when creating a new guest, tmem also needs this
else xl is also useless on a tmem-enabled system.
And in either case, it appears that the error handling
for "out of memory" spews meaningless error messages.

Doesn't look too hard, but haven't tried it yet. This
is something I use all the time though so would be nice
