Perhaps I misunderstand this stuff but AIUI the vfb= line configures a
Xen PV framebuffer device whereas the individual vnc*/sdl*/etc variables
configure the backend for the emulated VGA device. IOW they are pretty
much orthogonal and (for an HVM guest) both should work (dependent on
the required in-guest support being available). Also I'm not sure if
they can be used simultaneously, I expect they can.
