I tried to use the same technique as you used in vgasrc/Kconfig:

    config DEBUG_IO
        depends on !COREBOOT && DEBUG_LEVEL != 0
        bool "Special IO port debugging"
        default y
            Some emulators or hypervisors provide with a way to output debug
            information by outputing strings in a special port present in the
            IO space.

        depends on DEBUG_IO
        prompt "Debug IO port address"
        default DEBUG_IO_PORT_XEN if XEN
        default DEBUG_IO_PORT_BOCHS

        config DEBUG_IO_PORT_BOCHS
            bool "0x402 (Bochs)"
        config DEBUG_IO_PORT_XEN
            bool "0xe9 (Xen)"
        config DEBUG_IO_PORT_CUSTOM
            bool "Custom"

    config DEBUG_IO_PORT
        prompt "Debug IO port address" if DEBUG_IO_PORT_CUSTOM
        default 0x0402 if DEBUG_IO_PORT_BOCHS
        default 0x00e9 if DEBUG_IO_PORT_XEN
        default 0x0000
            Bochs uses the 0x0402 address by default, whereas Xen
            makes the 0xe9 IO address available for guests use.

Unfortunately, it still seem subject to the same issue. Is there
anything I am missing here ?
