It's possible, redhat built a paravirtualized framebuffer to give
pv guests a framebuffer


I imagine the problem is probably hypervisor dependent;  I mean,
I don't know anyone who actually used the paravirtualized framebuffer,
so it's probably not well tested, and may suffer from bit rot as other
features are added to xen.  I tested it, /I believe/ on rhel/centos 5.3.
