Description Miroslav Rezanina 2011-06-14 08:08:00 UTC
Description of problem:
When guest config is missing serial port specification, libvirt uses "-serial none" qemu option. However, this breaks xen qemu as it does not implement proper handling for none value of serial.

Proper handling has to be implemented.

Is this a regression?  And perhaps we want this in 5.7.z anyway...
