Is this with the same kernel? I suspect not, in particular because of

(XEN)  Phys-Mach map: ffffea0000000000->ffffea007e5acc80


(XEN) Dom0 memory clipped to 130846720 pages

(the former suggesting a kernel making use of XEN_ELFNOTE_INIT_P2M,
i.e. a forward ported one based on ours, the latter suggesting one
that doesn't, e.g. pv-ops). If booting fails completely, I'd suppose
the clipping calculation might be off by a few pages. Does output look
the same with "sync_console"? If so, does "watchdog" allow you to
get a stack trace and register dump of where execution hangs?

I also suppose that the second kernel boots fine when you pass
dom0_mem= with a value below 400G.
