[    9.276817] ioatdma 0000:00:16.4: desc[0]:
(0x300cc7000->0x300cc7040) cookie: 0 flags: 0x2 ctl: 0x29 (op: 0
int_en: 1 compl: 1)
[    9.276832] ioatdma 0000:00:16.4: ioat_get_current_completion:
phys_complete: 0xcc7000

Thanks, this clearly shows that our descriptors are above 4GB and that
the driver truncates the completion word.

Is this new behavior for xen?

Before you had mentioned that non-xen 32-bit builds don't fail.  Can
you send me the .config from those two cases (offlist if they are too
large)?  I'm looking for what config option enables this so I can
quote it in the patch to increase the size of phys_complete.
Certainly this changes my assumptions of what address ranges
GFP_KERNEL memory will be located.
