Re: Problems booting NetBSD/Xen on Intel NUC 12 Extreme w/ i9-12900

	hello.  A couple of quick suggestions:

1.  It's critical that the xenkernel and xentools packages be the same version.  While you
might be able to boot a dom0 with a mismatched xenkernel relative to the xentools you have
installed, when the system comes up and begins configuring itself to support domains, including
dom0, things will either behave very strangely, or the system may crash in unexpected ways.

2.  Having said that, I think one issue you may be having is that you're not assigning enough
memory to the dom0.  256mb of memory is not very much for modern NetBSD kernels and when they
don't have enough memory to initialize, they aren't very verbose about where the problem is.
I suggest trying to boot with 512mb or 1024mb as a test to see if that changes the behavior.
And, yes, that's with the noapic option in play, since that is a different issue, seemingly
related to how the xen hypervisor is coming up on your machine.

Hope that helps.
