Tank you for answer,

I got some basic understanding...

Yes indeed I hadn't compiled a framebuffer support into my gentoo kernel.
I added xen fb an console fb support and modified grub with
video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr:0 vga=0x311  (nothing know about mttr value :) )

Now I am able to get vnc  screen at boot startup, but just till "Freeing unused
kernel memory" line, further nothing... console hangs. At the same time DomU is
still alive and booted. I can ssh into it. Something missed to add to kernel?
