You should have console=hvc0.

See this wiki page for more information:

Unfortunately that didn't help. I've already had a look at that wiki
page and looking at the "working example grub.conf" you see that there's
no console param at all. tty0 was the result of my latest try to get
it running.

Also if the console is set up wrong, I would expect to keep getting the
Xen output instead of nothing - shouldn't I?

I also tried vga=ask and removing the quiet param - no change.

Oh, and /var/log/xen remains empty, so I assume the dom0 does not boot.
