Well very surprisingly on a 64 bit system (this is also without VT)
 I just transferred the tree I had pulled on the 32 bit system
and here I did see the Xen options in

Processor type and features-->

  --- Paravirtualized guest support
                                                [*]   Xen guest

                                                [*]   Enable Xen

                                                [*]   KVM

Paravirtualization layer for spinlocks

 what is visible in

but in Device Drivers option I again see the Xen specific options
     [*] Xen memory balloon driver

but I do not see the High Memory Support option in this 64 bit system
What branch do you use?
