No, it has been an oversight on the way domUloader was integrated
into xen. The XendBootloader assumes that the bootloader would
pass the kernel command line parameters back as (arg ...).
domUloader does not do that, as it does not use an external
configuration file where these would be specified.

Attached patch addresses this: If the bootloader does NOT return
anything as args, the values from the config file (ip, boot, extra)
will be filled in.

You need to apply this on top of the other domUloader patches.
Let me know if this addresses your problem.
