TBH: I just couldn't find it. I tried to get some diagnostics when
I started this work and couldn't find any place where the messages
would occur.

The console of the xenstore domain seems to be a little bit special, as
there is no component up to now writing the information needed to
connect xenconsoled to the xenstore domain. This could be the reason I
wasn't able to see any message printed via vfprintf. :-(

So in the end it will be part of xen dmesg. And this is where it should
be, as such messages will be needed in case of xenstore domain not
working properly. And I think it's console can be accessed by any means
only in case of a working xenstore. :-)
