It depends what the nature of your crash is, but you basically want to record 
the domain time at the beginning of the boot and stash it in a local variable.

Then in xen/runtime/kernel/main.c _exit function, check that sufficient time 
has passed and spin if it hasn't.

Alternatively, you should be able to start your domain paused and ensure the 
console is attached before booting.  That's probably a better change rather 
than a hack in Mirage itself.
