Ouch. The old "I inherited a system" situation :)
Which module is it? What distro? Some modules can be built out-of-tree.
For example, if you need fuse on Centos, you can start with a domU
having kernel-xen and kernel-xen-devel, and use it to compile a fuse
module without having to recompile the kernel.
If it were me, I'd simply use a vendor-provided xen-kernel
(RHEL/Centos, in this example) and compile the module out-of-tree.
This would reduce the chance of things going wrong.

Probably because somehow the original kernel uses tty1 for xen console.

each line should have it's own identifier. "1" is already taken for
tty1. See the link I sent earlier. Try with xvc0 first, and if it
doesn't work try ttyS0.
