Actually no, it simply causes Xen to ignore these entries.  The patch
I've got ready to submit to this list also adjusts the error message to
avoid misinterpretation, but does pretty well exactly this.

My only concern is whether it should ignore the entries only for Domain 0
or should always ignore them.

Please keep track of where your kernel source is checked out at since
there was a desire to figure out what was going on with the device-trees.

Including "console=hvc0 console=AMA0 console=ttyS0 console=tty0" in the
kernel command-line should ensure you get output from the kernel if it
manages to start (yes, Linux does support having multiple consoles at the
same time).
