Yes, I have applied that and the patch you posted just before it and it
fixes the crash issue if there is no frame buffer. The boot still fails
for me because of the gzip issue but it didn't get that far previously
with this setup.

The gzip issue?  Is your kernel really a gzip file, not something else?
(like bz2 or such).

Yes, the older style for xen kernels, still used for some guests such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, is to have a gzipped vmlinux executable. Xen support for bzimage style kernels is relatively recent.
