It is exciting!

I did a rerun with your suggestions. I trimmed the dom0_bootargs to:
module@0 {
        bootargs = "console=hvc0 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rw rootwait
earlyprintk=xen lpj=4464640";
        reg = <0x50000000 0x45b640>;
        compatible = "xen,linux-zimage", "xen,multiboot-module";
I still didn't see any output from dom0.

I do not have them set. I will explore this route. Also, if you have
any suggestions, please do let me know.

So I do get XEN to give me attention with Ctrl-a thrice. I hit 0 to
get the dom0 registers.
As mentioned in my reply to Julien, the PC register reflected the
below (at least no crash was happening in dom0)
With lpj not being passed in the dom0 kernel parameters it was looping
in function do_calibrate().
I then passed lpj in the dom0 kernel parameter, to help it move on. It
then loops in do_xor_speed() in line - while ((now = jiffies) == j),
implying jiffies is not being incremented - timer interrupt issues?

Thanks in advance for any advice!
