Could you setup the serial console on FreeBSD following:


Then add serial='pty' to your config file and create the domain using
`xl create -c <config_file>`. This way you can get the full serial output.

Yes, this is certainly possible. IIRC I posted a patch to the
freebsd-xen mailing list in order to do that. I will try to find/refresh
it and post it again so you can try it. It might have to wait until
Monday however, since I'm quite busy today.
