initrd with Xen

I'm trying to boot using an initrd but I get RAMDISK: image too big! followed by a kernel panic since the root device cannot be opened.

Is there a size limit? LPM allows you to create an initrd up to 32MiB. Mine is 8 MiB and it's complaining. Is there a ramdisk_size parameter passed to the kernel?

I've added "ramdisk_size=32768" to kernel args. I'm assuming this is totally reclaimed so it shouldn't hurt having it for everybody.
