If the answer to the above question is "yes", then I start
suspecting this to be a different problem. I'm not sure I
see a way to debug this without having access to any output
(i.e. neither video nor serial). Without "earlyprintk=xen"
and instead with "vga=keep watchdog" on the Xen command
line, is there anything helpful (without or if need be with
the debugging patch in place)?

As per above, not sure if there's going to be one. Thanks
for your patient testing!
