I have made the for-CentOS-v5 branch available on
This is based on 3.4.54 and includes the following additional fixes

You may also wish to consider enabling CONFIG_XEN_BALLOON_MEMORY_HOTPLUG. The kernel bug that was causing problems is already fixed (by xen/balloon: Subtract from xen_released_pages the count that is populated) and now that dom0 will not try to auto-balloon by default, enabling this option should no longer cause problems in dom0.
This option is required to increase the amount of memory in a guest using this kernel above the initial amount.
