You shouldn't need the vga= bit, since there's no real or emulated VGA going 
on for a PV guest.

The way you've set up console= and xencons= the boot messages will probably be 
going to the domain's virtual serial console (use xm console or xm create -c 
to access this).  If you want them to appear on the framebuffer console, 
change your "console=" line to "console=tty1".

Does that work?
