Something broke tty0 and I reverted CS153 and it solves the problem for me. If I pass console=tty0 in the domain-0 boot command line now on CS195 then the last output I see is 'Continuing...' after the 'big' tls emulation warning. Not even a prompt anymore, but some kernel error message -- a different note for these error messages, though.
