The host history suggests this may possibly be related to a qemu update.

Logs from last host examination, including a dmesg:


Re the command line, does Xen not print it ?

The bootloader output seems garbled in the serial log.

Anyway, I think Xen is being booted EFI judging by the grub cfg:


which means that it is probaly reading this:


which gives this specification of the command line:

  options=placeholder conswitch=x watchdog noreboot async-show-all 
console=dtuart dom0_mem=512M,max:512M ucode=scan  

The grub cfg has this:

 multiboot /xen placeholder conswitch=x watchdog noreboot async-show-all 
console=dtuart dom0_mem=512M,max:512M ucode=scan  ${xen_rm_opts}

It's not clear to me whether xen_rm_opts is "" or "no-real-mode edd=off".
