The console information of dom0 is living in the same memory page as the

with a newer start_info layout than the hypervisor could interprete
console data as part of the start_info data.

Before commit 50bd1f0825339dfacde471df7664729216fc46e3 there used to be a
padding at the end of start_info, but this was removed as it was regarded
to be not necessary.

Said commit removed padding from shared_info, not start_info.

Aargh, not enough coffee, I guess.

Sorry for the noise.
