Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] Cannot access dom0 console
User-agent: Microsoft-Entourage/
Default console has changed to /dev/xvc0.

Two solutions:
 1. Add 'xencons=ttyS' to your dom0 cmdline.
 2. Remove any 'console=' statements from you dom0 cmdline, add a getty on
xvc0 to your dom0 inittab, and add xvc0 to your /etc/securetty file.

(1) Gets you previous console behaviour. (2) updates your dom0 to handle new
console behaviour.
