Hi Roger,

That boots as pvh dom0 and pvh guests also boot and work !

Hmm another thing that catched my eye now, is Xen relinquishing the
console to the linux kernel in the early kernel boot phase doesn't seem
to work. The screen stays black between Xen relinquishing the console
until a modesettings graphics card driver gets loaded later on, but you
will miss everything from the kernels early boot phase.
Probably because it is relying on something "legacy" which PVH doesn't
provide ?
