This has nothing to do with kernel-xen ... You'll have the same problem
with the standard kernel. Upstream did compile kernels for el5 without
CONFIG_FB_VESA ... so no framebuffer at the console.

See the report on the upstream bugzilla system :

As stated, this will be (probably) solved in el5.1 ...
