"Xen 3.0 Users' Manual" says that xencons=ttyS attaches the console to
The direct cause of this error is that mingetty ended on abnormal status
mingetty was logging the following message. I checked the source codes
and found that this message was logged when opening /dev/tty1 failed on

 /bin/mingetty[2399]: tty1: cannot open tty: No such device or address

/dev/tty1-6 are your virtual consoles (on a regular linux box, pres alt-f1, alt-f2, etc, to reach the other consoles) Xen only supports one console. (for xm console) so when init tries to start getty on one of the other, non-existant consoles, it fails, and attempts to re-start over and over again (thus the respawning to fast error.)
