[Xen-users] dom0 pvh successfull, but no console

Hi all.

I have an ubuntu 18.04 LTS with edge kernel (v5), and I set up xen with
these options:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nomodeset nosplash quiet"
GRUB_CMDLINE_XEN_DEFAULT="dom0=pvh dom0_mem=4096M,max:4096M
dom0_max_vcpus=4 dom0_vcpus_pin"

without dom0=pvh everything works as expected. WITH dom0=pvh I have
network and I can SSH on the server, but I cannot see anything on the
screen. keystrokes via the keyboard are going in. The monitor does not
turn into sleep, but it is active, but completely blank. Not even a
cursor blinking.

I guess in pvh0 mode I should add something to the boot line to have the
phisical console enabled. Unfortunately both console=vga and
console=hvc0 turned to be efectless.

Does anyone has idea how can I bring back the local login screen (tty
console) while using dom0=pvh?

Also, for some reason I still see the qemu process running (even tough
that I should not need it ut I should not need it for dom0 pvh):

 /usr/bin/qemu-system-i386 -xen-domid 0 -xen-attach -name dom0
-nographic -M xenpv -daemonize -monitor /dev/null -serial /dev/null
-parallel /dev/null -nodefaults -no-user-config -pidfile

Thank you.
