Xen console name on different kernel versions

I’ve just been struggling to get a xen console working for Ubuntu 8.04 (hardy). By default, xen-create-image uses hvc0, but that’s only since kernel 2.6.26 (don’t know if that’s only pv_ops or xen-patched). Hardy uses 2.6.24 and therefore it’s xvc0. The xen-create-image command or xen-tools.conf config file therefore need a parameter serial_device=xvc0.
