I messed up on that. Redid the numbers and I was off.

To make this a bit easier I used 'dom0_max=max:3G', which means
(with this swiss-cheese type E820 on this Intel box):

[    0.000000] Released 75745 pages of unused memory

so I should have 75745 pages left to play with. But what I found is that
I can only go up to 786415 which is 17 pages short of the 786432 goal.

Here are the steps:

$cat `find /sys -name current_kb`
$echo $((3*1024*1024))
$echo "3145728" > `find /sys -name target_kb`
$cat `find /sys -name current_kb`
$xl dmesg | tail

17 pages.. Hmm
