Hello Boris,

Thank you for the reviews! Without the call to get_cpu_address_sizes,
paravirtualized virtual machines do not boot up kernels with versions
4.17 and up at all; this includes dom0 and domU. No domU logs are
generated in dom0's /var/log/xen/console/ directory either, despite
having earlyprintk=xen on the kernel command line for my test domU.

(For the record, I am using the patched version of Xen 4.6.6 provided
by Qubes OS R3.2.)

Thank you,

Vefa
