as far as i understood there are only a few things that will block the transfer of the serial ports to domU:
- serial drivers need to be blacklisted on dom0 (you did that)
- serial drivers need to be compiled and installed on domU (you did that)
- the ioports and irq stuff needs to be added to the domU config file (you did that)
and 1 more of which i'm not sure:
- kernel config option CONFIG_XEN_DISABLE_SERIAL should not be set on the domU kernel (i'm not sure if you changed that before recompiling - i'm having a lot of troubles getting my kernel compiled, so i haven't tested this yet)

can you confirm that the above option is NOT set for your domU ? you would save me a lot of work.

Hi guys,
I've got the same problem. Following recommendations above I added serial
stuff on dom0 to blacklist.
In /etc/xen/vm/vm2 file I added irq and ioports section. I added 8250 and
serial_core and rebuild the kernel on domU. When vm get loaded there is no
word about serial in dmesg output. On the other side there  are /dev/ttyS0
to ttyS7 on dom0
Have I missed something?
