No, there isn't.  xenlinux has hijacked major 4 from the vt subsystem
for the xenconsole.  IMHO that was a bad idea in the first place.  UML
made the same mistake btw.  Now we have the situation that you can have
either the framebuffer + vt or xenconsole, never both.

Asking xenconsole to grab the serial line instead should work
