I am using the default xen_defconfig in the arm64 directory. This is
very early on
in building the domain, would the guest configuration matter?

Thanks, I started with 4.11 and work my way up. I have the same
problem in both cases.

I dug a bit deeper, in privcmd_ioctl_mmap_batch, a global error was detected for
mmap_batch_fn during the mapping of the second half of  0x2f3d of pages. I am
still trying to track down why it is the 8192th element that cause the
problem. seem
like too much of coincidence its the first element of the second half.

Make sense, since I can rename it but destroy it still left it as null.
