I'm glad to hear that.
Then I'll start to pushing merging patches soon.
Perhaps from the next monday or tuesday.

This message means that the xen heap memory is used up and
However you wisely limited total memory to 1GB,
thus page frame table size is 2MB and mpt_table size is 512KB.
So it's the key to know who used up the xen heap.
I guess pgtable_quicklist_alloc() might be a culprit.
Could you try again with the following work around patch?
This patch may break something, but this patch may help
to track down this issue.
