OK.  So we have two options, as I see it, if someone starts a guest
with both xenpaging=yes and memory<maxmem:

* Refuse to build the domain and return an error.
* Figure out how to boot with memory<maxmem only with the pager.  I
guess this would involve building with half the memory, and telling
the pager that some pages are pre-paged out...?

If the second option is too much work before the release, we should go
with the first option.
