Two things come to mind.

One, you might be using a different branch than me.
origin/xen/stable-2.6.32.x should contain newer code than
origin/xen/stable (see
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git;a=heads for
complete branch list). I haven't tested xen/stable, so I don't know
what condition it currently is.

Second, you might not select High Memory Support -> 64GB yet. By
default, 4GB is selected instead of 64GB, in which case Xen options
will be hidden (just like what you pasted).

Other than those two, I don't know what else can cause the difference.
