l4lx_memory_map_virtual_page messages ending in internal error

Hi!

As mentioned in a previous thread I tried xz compression of my
initramfs image in L4Linux on ARM. When L4Linux tried to decompress the
following messages occured:

> Trying to unpack rootfs image as initramfs...
> l4lx_memory_map_virtual_page: Already used, existing is 2400020
> l4lx_memory_map_virtual_page: cannot attach vpage (2ca64000, 2816324f): -99
> l4lx_memory_map_virtual_page: Already used, existing is 2400020

and the same messages (with increasing address) repeated for a zillion
of times until it eventually ended like this:

> l4lx_memory_map_virtual_page: cannot attach vpage (2ee44000, 25d4324f): -99

What can I learn from these messages? The same image could be
decompressed on the same hardware with a native Linux kernel. I know
that my compression options were probably not optimal and the
algorithm might have used a lot of memory. But I have seen out of
memory messages from Moe and L4Linux before and they were easy to
understand. So could this really be some time of internal error,
i.e. bug?
