It looks like the device tree you have passed to the domU kernel has told the kernel that a video encoder present. domU kernels will require a different device tree compared to dom0 or not-hypervised kernels.

Thanks Daniel.

In the kernel we have disabled the Encoder and decoder modules and boot proceeded bit ahead.
Now we are facing below issue.

Does Android even use init=? I thought the true root filesystem for Android came from the initramfs.
