I have an Intel DX50SO motherboard for a Core i7 CPU which has no
legacy ports whatsoever, so no COM1 serial port. I added a "SIIG
CyberPro PCI 1S" single serial port PCI card.
Linux dmesg shows it as:
[ 30.244790] Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 4 ports, IRQ sharing enabled
[ 30.244984] serial8250: ttyS1 at I/O 0x2f8 (irq = 3) is a NS16550A

Note that the only port actually connected to the single connecter is
ttyS0 at 0x1060. I can successfully use this as the Linux serial
console by adding the Linux boot parameters:
However, I'm having problems trying to get it to work as a Xen
console. If I add:
to Xen, I do get some output to the port, but all the characters look
.<.....~.o....¼..4.|.a.½¬o.§¼4.#.ÿ.......ö4..¬.... 4. .
4Ä...T.Ä ..¼.Ä ....<.
Can anyone help me to get this to work?
