port-xen/47669: X fails to start on Xen DOM0 (amd64)

NetBSD 6.1_RC2 (XEN3_DOM0) #6: Sun Mar 17 23:54:06 CET 2013
When starting modular Xorg on a 6.1_RC2 amd64 DOM0, it fails with the
(EE) RADEONHD(0): No Video RAM detected.
I haven't experienced this on earlier versions of the netbsd-6 branch;
however, I have recently raised the amount of RAM allocated to the DOM0
from 2048 to 4096MB, and I suspect this might well be related.
I can test with a lower amount when I get physical access to this
computer again, probably this evening.
This might be helpful:
modular-xorg-server-1.6.5nb14 Modular X11 server from modular X.org
modular-xorg-drivers-1.4 Modular Xorg driver meta-package
xf86-video-radeonhd-1.3.0nb2 Modular X.org driver for Radeon HD series
The machine has a total of 6 GB of RAM. The video card is a Sapphire
ATI/AMD RadeonHD 4870, with 512 MB of video RAM IIRC. It works otherwise
fine with a GENERIC kernel.
Run modular Xorg from pkgsrc 2012Q4 on a 6.1_RC2 amd64 XEN3_DOM0 kernel,
with 4096 MB of memory allocated to the DOM0.
Unknown at the moment.
